The first thing you need to do this month is make sure you have a garden notebook. You’re going to want a place to write down your experiences.
Tracking your progress will help you reference your success and failures year after year. Believe me you will have a mix of both because we never stop learning in the garden.You’ll be tracking your soil needs, seed quality, when you planted, weather conditions, harvesting and the list goes on. So please make sure you get a notebook.
The Rainy Season
This month make sure you beds or ground are tilled and ready for planting. If you’re further north then you’ll need to simply calculate your progress related to your weather.Raised beds should be weed free, fertilized and ready for planting. Are you excited yet?
Veggie and Herb Gardens
There’s time to plant fresh bare root vines in the first couple of weeks and you can probably purchase them at a discount.
You can also sow any annual flower seeds in boxes or beds. Imagine a fresh cut flower garden, doesn’t that sound wonderful?
