Let your spring garden grow, the right way

NOW: Let your spring garden grow, the right way

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--This is the time of year many of us get a little antsy in our gardens.  We want to get as proactive as we can, but sometimes Mother Nature has her own agenda. Case in point the frost we saw overnight.  So Joey Baird, radio host of the Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener, says your best bet is to plant only the hearty vegetables now, like broccoli, cauliflower, onions, head lettuce, parsley, and early cabbage.  This is also the time of year to sow certain seeds directly into the garden, like beans, okra, pumpkins, and sweet corn.  Baird also recommends doing some mulching around your flower beds.  This natural fertilizer is considered to be the ultimate gardening time-saver.

Baird and his wife, Holly, will be at Bluemel's Garden & Landscape Tuesday, May 11th at 5 pm talking about growing tomatoes in your garden.  You can also catch the couple on their radio show every Saturday morning from 7 to 8 on 1340AM or 98.7 FM.
