Every year when the middle of May rolls around I get excited because it’s time to get my garden ready. I have a nice plot in my backyard- it’s approximately 8 X 14- plenty of space for veggies and herbs.
A few years ago I decided to skip the big stores, and found a local east-end nursery to support. A neighbor of mine suggested that I stop by Garden Dreams Urban Farm and Nursery at 806 Holland Avenue in Wilkinsburg. It’s a true gem, and the quality of the plants is amazing.
Springtime is here. It’s time to get out your gardening equipment, till the soil, and prepare for your garden. It’s been a long hard winter, but all of that extra snow has actually had a positive effect on something- extra moisture in the soil. This extra water will help your plants thrive and have an advantage right from the start! If you’re planning on having a vegetable garden, try getting your plants in the ground by Mother’s Day.
