It is the 21st  of March.  The sun is halfway to its peak position.  And yet most people plant their gardens in the Northeast around Memorial Day.  And so what do your plants need?

Sunlight!

Place a white reflector behind your Square Foot Garden and watch the plants thrive.  For young children the whiteboard can be a message board.

Try growing things with your children in the yard and see if they will start enjoying vegetables for lunch and dinner.  Or what do you think about a delicious smoothie for them straight from the garden?

    This winter I have had to store some vegetable waste in a bin without leaves, etc. Can I just bury it in the garden if a month before planting my tomatoes?
