We put together a list of things to consider to make the transition from snow to sow to grow as easy as possible and help you prepare your garden- and yourself- for Spring veggies.
Make a list of vegetables you want to plant. Jot down any that come to mind, remember to include specific varieties you liked from the year before. Want to be extra prepared?
