Gearing up for Gardening

It's almost time for spring gardening! Here's a roundup of garden resources to save for later!

It’s like magic: March arrives, and suddenly the snow is melting and temperatures are rising. Not that we don’t expect more snow–especially if this year we actually get the “typical” Michigan winter folks have been promising us. (Because last year was a joke, right?) Meantime, I’m enjoying the slightly warmer weather and dreaming of all the things we’re going to be planting in a few weeks.

I’ve probably mentioned that we live in an apartment, right? That won’t keep us from planting a garden, though, thanks to Jami’s eBook Apartment Gardening. I’ve been scouring the web for additional gardening resources and articles, and I thought I’d share in case you’d like to get your hands dirty this spring, too.
