I found a great garden zone map that will help new gardeners figure out what plants will grow best in their area of the country. I know we’re big on gardening and my kids love it too! So NOW is the time to add to your calendar a date to plant your garden.
I made a decision this year to push my garden a little further this year and purchase a portable greenhouse. They have pretty good reviews. You can find them starting at $30 up to $300.00. The one above that I’m purchasing is only around a $100 bucks. A great investment for fresh fruit and veggies and to be able to pick my harvest quite a but earlier in the season and to grow later in the season so I’m really excited!
