If you’ve ever dreamt of starting a vegetable garden, the summertime can be the best time for planning and planting. With the warm, dry air and ideal temperatures, most veggies can thrive and grow.

A few tips to get your plants ready:

  • Get all your seeds together, and transplant to your compost area. Check out this blog for great composting tips.
  • Cloudy days work best for any transplanting. Once your transplant is complete, water the seedlings often.
  • Don’t forget to add the mulch once you’ve watered the soil. The mulch will retain the needed moisture.
