Starting your seeds Indoors

In the northwest we are having cloudy rainy days lately; I am waiting for spring to spring forth. In the east they are still getting winter weather so I am sure they can't wait for some warmer temperatures as well. For me March is the time of year to start seeds indoors and put a first crop of potatoes or peas outside.

So what plants do you start now? Check out my planting info for vegetable seeds.

  • CLEAN UP YOUR GARDEN SPACE Go for a walk in your garden, pick up debris from last fall that still needs to be cleaned up or branches from winter storms. Take the time to clean up your garden space.

  • MULCH Is there rotting mulch that needs to be turned over or replenished? Mulch has a variety of benefits to your garden soil and plants.

  • START SEEDS INDOORS Starting plants now will give you a head start in planting and then harvesting. Check out these seeding tips.

  • FERTILIZE YOUR GARDEN SOIL Rain, snow and even wind will leach important nutrients from the soil. Plants use up what is in the ground each year so it is necessary to amend garden beds seasonally. Check our my ebook "Why is Soil so Important" your garden beds on a seasonal basis.

  • PLANT POTATOES & PEAS If you have great drainage, warm March weather the end of the month is a great time to get your first crop of potatoes and peas into the ground
