Ready For Wonder?

When should I start my veggie garden?

After your first attempt to grow a vegetable garden, you probably have more questions than answers.
 Should I start my seeds indoors then transplant into my garden?  Should I plant seed directly into my garden?  When should I plant?  Which veggies like it hot and which like it cold?  What varieties will grow in my area? When should I fertilize and what should I use?  What soil pH does my tomato plant prefer? Or my asparagus?  Or my blueberry bush?  What is nitrogen, where does it come from, and why does my garden need it?

Let's start with The Garden Planting Calendar for your area from All Things Plants.

Single Winter Thoughts

Clear winter morning
A single snowflake floats by
Brilliant dot of light
Sunlight shining in
Greeting and caressing one
Warms the lonely soul
God's love surrounds me
Embracing and forgiving 
Freeing sin's captive
