The Veggie Gardener's Best Friend
This time of year, the days are short enough to give you an excuse to head - or stay - indoors. Put up those worn out feet for some much deserved rest and think about gardening in the upcoming warm months. Our long evenings now are the ideal time to perfect your strategy to have an unvexed, productive year in the garden, with problems from pests, weeds, and diseases minimized.
To plan this strategy, the single resource the local vegetable gardener needs most is Seattle Tilth's Maritime Northwest Garden Guide. This is, to start, a month-by-month planning calendar compiled by experienced Northwest organic gardeners. When to start what indoors, when to plant outside with or without protection, when to put out your tomatoes, what to plant in the fall for February harvest - the Guide allows you to more accurately plan this year's bounty. Besides the planting calendars, each month contains invaluable gardening information - composting tips, edible weeds, organic fertilizer recipes, beneficial insects, pest control, you name it! Cozy up with this great little Guide now - your garden will thank you for it.
