Well, folks, it’s my favorite gardening time of year.
Spring is coming!
The “official” start of spring this year is March 20. However, for some of us, planting has already begun for our spring/summer crops. For others, last frost isn’t for a bit yet.
That’s why it’s important to know your gardening zone. Also called the Hardiness Zone, this map/chart lets you know when it’s safe to break ground and get those fledglings that you’ve had under a sun lamp into the fresh, wonderful-smelling spring earth.
he USDA has a handy chart here. Check it out and if you’re a head-starter like myself, you’ll want to get some seeds into peat pots right now so they’re up and ready when your ground is.
