Wow. I Think Spring Is Here

Leave a comment

This spring seems like it has taken a long time coming but with any luck it has finally arrived.  There are a few vegetables that you can start now.  On the back of seed packages there are regions that are marked in colors – Indiana is in the green which means planting in April is good.  After all it is the middle of the month.

I have planted onions both sweet and green, sweet carrots and lettuce but am wanting to add more item to my garden this year.

Nice looking lettuce

just just think of all the salads you could make getting fresh lettuce from the market or your garden.  Nothing is better than fresh vegetables in the summer.

I would like like to challenge everyone to the vegetable challenge.  So this summer, go to the store and buy a tomato, then come to the market and buy a tomato.  Then slice each one but keep them separate , then taste one then the other.  I bet you will pick the market tomato over the store bought tomato every time.  Same with just about every other vegetable.

Want a special topic?  Something you want to know about gardening?   Let me know and we can explore.  Until tomorrow, think gardening.
