  • Plan your garden for maximum production

    Last week, we focused our attention on choosing seeds for our gardens. For all gardeners, we aspire to have a successful gardening season—full of bounty and enjoyment. Let us continue the gardening discussion with some helpful tips to keep in mind for your garden.

    Plan your garden on paper before you begin. Draw a scale model of your garden space.
