If you haven't started putting in your vegetable garden yet, it isn't too late. Some parts of the country are still too cold and you will need to know your seasonal timing to plant. Where I live, the weather is really nice and it is possible to grow a garden all year round. You do need to know the needs of the plants and when they grow the best. Also, if you plant a cold sensitive plant too late, it may freeze before you get a yield. All the details come in time and you will certainly learn by your mistakes.
There are some plants that you will want to get in the ground now (or soon) that are a real asset to your garden. Tomatoes are a good example. You can't grow them all year long but if you get them in early enough, (May is good), you will end up with bigger, better plants. Even if you get them in by June or even July, you will still get tomatoes, just not as many or not as big.
So, my goal in this blog is to help inspire others to get started and keep up the positive habit of growing your own food. I will continue to add to this blog and introduce you to my videos on different plants and different areas of vegetable gardening. I sure hope you enjoy watching them and please do leave comments, questions and just plain old good ideas!
We all learn from other gardeners and there isn't a gardener alive that can honestly say that he or she "knows it all"!
