It’s Planning Time! Need Help?

My pulse is quickening, heart rate buzzing, and like Santa, I have a twinkle in my eye. No, it’s not Christmas, it’s time to plan those gardens!

Are you ready? Do you have a plan? Did you include a crop rotation? Do you know what you’re going to plant? Are you starting seeds indoors? Buying transplants? Have no idea? Have you purchased your seeds yet? Have you started planting your seedlings? Do you know when to plant your seedlings? Do these words make you panic? If so, let me know, I can help!

Yes, this is my first post as a shameless plug of how I can help you plan your garden to get you prepared for a successful gardening season.

Spring officially starts March 20th. Most seeds need to be started 4 – 8 weeks in advance of the last frost, with 6 weeks being the average. In central Minnesota, the average last frost date is May 15th, so what that means is that you need to have a plan in place and start seeds soon!

If you are interested in planning or planting a garden but are stuck on the planning part, I would love to sit down with you, either in person or in a virtual setting and help you learn how to do this.

We can map out your planting beds, a crop rotation, and a planting and harvest schedule so you know which plants you need to start growing and when.

This could be a one-on-one session, a small group or larger scale.

Need help? Let me know!
