Nothing says we are getting closer to spring than the volume of seed and plant catalogs that are showing up in my mailbox. Warm weather can’t be too far away! Before you know it will be time to start the garden.

Much of the work of the garden needs to happen before you even break the soil. Before you dig in, it’s important to choose the proper site, plan what you will be growing, and prepare the soil to yield the best possible results.
