Out in the O-Garden, Issue #003 -- Organic Gardening
April 15, 2014

Those first few warm days are so blissful - the snow melts quickly and it's mud season.

Time to do some seed planting. I generally start with some mesclun, spinach and broccoli and cabbage. This gives me some early greens, which I crave, and the mixed varieties of broccoli have long enough to make a good harvest later on.

There is a lot of confusion about how to make that perfect compost; follow my simple composting instructions; it's important not to stress over it; after all, compost happens.

Growing a vegetable garden is a good goal but every gardener worth their salt wants flowers too; plant some of the best flowers for bright color, which attracts pollinating insects; it's not an either/or proposition, it's a win/win - beautiful flowers for you, pollen and nectar for the bees and butterflies.

See you next time on O-Garden - Meanwhile, you can see what I'm up to on Facebook and G+.
