“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
– Douglass Adams
As you may have guessed from the quotes, I’m late.
I should have posted this at least a month ago, my bad. Luckily, there is still time now to give serious thought to your spring garden. Typically, each climate or zone has an ideal time to start planting and ideally, it helps to start the seeds indoors. However, as I mentioned before, I am a bit late. So, let’s just fast forward and get to the part where we discuss where you can get the information necessary for the preparation and the actualization of your garden.
Here, in Central Texas we are a zone 8a or 8b, depending on your exact location. Luckily, for all of us this information resides on the World Wide Web! The National Gardening Association not only informs you of your particular climate, it also gives you concise information about the native plants, gardening activities in your area, etc. It is quite useful; I highly recommend it. One other resource I came across on the internet (it’s a great place, this internet), which I am sure you all have heard of, The Farmers’ Almanac. Chalk full of information that can help you plan your garden, help guide you through the process and acquire knowledge that will prove useful in the oncoming (insert noun) apocalypse. A word of advice, don’t use my method of procrastination, nature is always on time.
