gardeners, mid-March marks the best time of the gardening season. What’s really important is

Wait to prepare your garden

After a long a snowy winter, most gardeners are anxious to start preparing their garden for planting. But don’t rush into it to quickly! Preparing your soil too early can be harmful to your garden. When the soil is still saturated from rain or melting snow it can easily become compacted by equipment or just walking on it. Large clumps of wet soil will eventually dry out into heavy chunks that are harder to break up later. How do you know when your soil is ready? Grab a handful of soil and squeeze it into a ball. If you can break the ball with your hand or fingers, or by dropping it, the soil is ready for planting. If you have a hard time breaking that ball you’ll need to wait a little longer to prepare your garden.
