Preparing to Prepare the Garden

It's the end of March in Wisconsin. That means...well, it can mean anything. For a gardener, it means Don't Get Too Eager; We Could Still get Snow!" I can get started thinking about it - planning, not planting.

I ordered plants from my local environmental charter school. I'll pick up those tomato and pepper and herb plants on Mothers' Day.

I've heard of another unique source of plants. It's called Free Plants by Mail, and it's an organization that finds new homes for overstocks and extras: plants grown for nurseries and greenhouses and then not needed. Heard of animal rescues? This sounds like a plant rescue to me. It sounds rather tempting, too. Proceeds go to the Nature Conservancy.

For more on my own garden planning, go to Green Spot On, where I guest post most Mondays.

Never heard of this! How cool.
Yes, no planting before Mother's Day! No planting at all!

I haven't heard of "free plants by mail" but it sounds worth checking into. I absolutely love gardening and I live in Minnesota so it is about time to start gardening as well. I work from home and during my lunch break I often go out and tend to my garden, it’s just so relaxing. I sometimes even use pictures of my plants as inspiration for my party favor business. Lots of fun!
