Starting Your Garden

Introduction
This is a general Guide to planting and raising vegetables from seeds.

 Begin as early as possible

As early as possible in the growing season, prepare a list of the vegetables, you wish to grow.  Make a plan where in the garden you want to put your plants, take note of wind, shade, and sunlight conditions. Save the paper and add notes as your garden progresses.  Remove seeds from your seed storage according to your planed planting schedule.  Quickly maturing plants such as radishes, leaf lettuce, and other greens, can be planted early and late in the seasons for multiple harvests, this is sometimes called ( the fall garden). Fall gardens of hardy plants may be grown harvested up to the first fall frost, even later with protective structures.
