Growing up, working in my family’s garden was NOT a choice, it was required to get my allowance- boo! Now I find great joy in prepping my Dad’s garden and seeing the fruits, and vegetables, of our labor. Here are 4 simple tips that my friends at organicauthority.com have laid out to prep your Spring going:
DIG DEEP: The best gardens are 6 to 18 inches deep. It all depends on what you’re growing and your soil’s natural state.
SUCCULENT SOIL: Take a sample of your soil to your garden store to test what minerals might be missing and the acidity levels. They’ll recommend what you need to get it in tip-top shape.
MULCH-IFY: Adding mulch helps protect your early planters from freezing over, as Spring times weather can fluctuate. It also helps combat your gardens nemesis, weeds!
WATER WORKS: Chart out your watering hose path before you plant so you don’t end up individually watering each plant by hand. This saves precious water and your even more precious time.
