It is the last day of March 2014. And looking out the window right now doesn't inspire anyone to think of planting a garden. Especially with snow still on the ground. But the time will come and it would be prudent to start planning.
Think about what you would like to see growing outside of your window. What kind of conditions you have. Think about the soil, where you will plant, how much sunlight the plant will be able to access.
Not everyone is going to have acres to plant on. But you can grow in a small space. Container planting has become very popular. You can grow vertical instead of horizontal. There is great pleasure in watching something grow and tending to it. Not to mention the delight of fresh produce at mealtime. We're not just talking about produce either. There are some spectacular flowers out there that can just brighten your mood.
