THE DIRT

It’s time to get growing! If you haven’t already started your plants from seed, check out your local Farmers Coop for healthy transplants. Remember choose vegetables your family enjoys along with one or two new ones to try.

TIP: Watch plants carefully for any signs of insect damage (holes, stripped stems, or notches) so you can take early action to combat pests. Consider planting a cover row to create a barrier from veggie-loving rabbits (I always plant marigolds). Also, watch your soil temperature and be careful not to under or overwater.
