Can I Start a Garden Now? Absolutely, NOW Is Always the Best Time.
There's always a way to get a garden started "now". Right now the catalogs and garden suppliers are having sales, so you can get your materials at a reduced rate. You can take advantage of the late seasonal sales of seeds, planters, bagged soil and amendments.. Once you decide on the site with at least 6 hours of sunshine, and plan the layout, you can build/buy the raised bed(s) or do "container gardening" as a start. You can plan the protection from local wildlife aka fencing...., and add the soil. All you need to do is read the seed packets carefully, follow the directions, water as directed and wait, patiently. If you are impatient, you can start with small plants like tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, herbs...Plant what you like to eat. Start small. But do start. It's such fun! And the results are magical! Look! Potatoes, red ones, under the soil, more and more..."pommes de terre".
