Planting Seeds for Spring

springtime gardeningSpring has officially sprung and it's time to start planning your garden!   Here in New England where I live, we still have some thawing out to do, but now is the time to begin seedlings indoors for some crops, including onions and tomatoes which are two of my favorites.  Nothing gets me more into the mood for spring than starting to plan which things to plant and then starting some of our seedlings indoors.  

The Farmer's Almanac has a great guide that will tell you based off your zip code when you can begin planting things:  http://www.almanac.com/gardening/planting-dates

Also be sure to read up on my rainwater harvesting tips.   Make sure your rain barrels are good to go so you don't waste those upcoming April showers!  (and conserve your water!)
