I’m so done with this cold weather and am ready for spring. I have a ways to go, so in the meantime I’ve been dreaming of planting a garden this spring. While spring is still a ways away, it’s time to begin preparing if you are planning to plant a garden. Depending on what you plan to plant, you should start growing your seeds indoors 2-14 weeks prior to the last frost, so now is a good time to buy your seeds.
The type of seed you choose is very important. Most seeds that you’ll find in stores are either gmo seeds or hybrid, meaning they’ve been genetically altered. Heirloom seeds are the seeds you’ll want to plant. These seeds have been passed down throughout the generations, preserving the original makeup of the seed. They have not been genetically altered. Seed Savers is a good resource for purchasing heirloom seeds. Just click on Quick Order in the right hand column.
