Spring Tip #1 - Blueprints

If you are like me, spring makes me want to start gardening, but it is a bit too early for planting here in the valley. One of the things that you can do for your garden while you wait to plant is to make a blueprint. Blueprints help with planning a garden. If you make a blueprint, you don't have to worry about where you are going to plant your vegetables when you begin planting! Also, it is helpful for the plants not to be grown in the same area as the previous year. The vegetables would have already taken the nutrients out of the soil that they needed. I have kept my old blueprints so that it's easy to see how the garden was planned out last year. It also helps me to be more efficient with my garden space.
