Modern-Day Gardening

Spring has sprung; your veggies and herbs should follow suit. Homegrown bounty doesn’t need a backyard. Think inside the box! Grow your goods in containers on a deck, patio, or balcony. Rather than starting from the seed, opt for seedlings that have already begun to sprout. Use a premium quality potting mix that will hold moisture but also drain well. When selecting your pot, keep in mind that almost anything can serve as a container: flower pots, pails, buckets, wire baskets, bushel baskets, washtubs, window planters, even large food cans. Feed your plants, water regularly, and plant your pots in a sunny spot. Reap a hefty harvest of fresh greens and herbs for dinner that embellish your table. Not sure what veggies or herbs to plant?
