Kicking off gardening and composting!

The original reason for having Daylight Savings Time was to give farmers extra light at night to work in the field. While it’s safe to assume not all of our followers are farmers, this certainly gives us the green light to kick off our spring and summer gardening.

Our favorite things to plant in our garden are things that we can then compost and put back into the earth. Talk about the circle of life, eh? Check out our favorite March veggies!

Carrots: Carrots are great and easy to grow, even if you don’t have much of a green thumb. As long as there’s enough sun, water, and space for them to grow, you don’t have to do much else.

Celery: If you’re dying to get started but the ground is still a bit too frozen to start digging, celery is perfect for you. You can start the seeds indoors and then transplant them once the ground becomes more workable.

Green Beans: Whether you’re a pro with a large garden or a first-timer with a wee bit o’ space, green beans are a great choice. Because they grow on a vine (or a bean stalk) they don’t require a lot of space.

Lettuce: Lettuce is a cold season crop, meaning it needs a cooler environment to be able to grow. If you’re a bit north and it’s still chilly in March, lettuce is the perfect vegetable to plant.

Broccoli: Think lettuce is nasty? Well then you might not like broccoli either….but! Broccoli is also a cold season crop. Perfect for planting in the spring or the fall.
