Learn what to consider in planning a garden, from choosing a site to selecting crops, quantities to grow for your family, and when to get started.  What does it take to turn a path of your lawn into a garden plot?  We’ll talk about siting requirements, turf removal, soil analysis and amendments.  Is it best to build boxed beds, a raised bed or just plant in a smooth piece of ground?  We’ll look at all of these options and more.  We’ll take time to talk about your specific challenges.  Leave with copies of Deb’s favorite seed catalogs.
