It is almost time to start planting my garden here in Upstate NY.Â We are still having frost occassionally, but by the end of the month it should be safe to plant my vegetables outside.Â I enjoy growing lots of different vegetables, including tomotoes, basil, peppers and beans.Â As you can see from the picture, last year my basil was pretty proflic, but I was disapointed with how my green peppers did. I didn’t use any plant food last year after my initial planting, so this year I am going to see if adding plant food increases my yield.
One of the best things about growing your own vegetables is that you can make sure you use only organic materials, so it is healthier for your family.
