March Gardening

March – This is the month is where the real fun begins, permitting the weather is nice enough.  To get started you’ll want to till where you’re planning to put your garden.  After the soil is tilled you can plant lettuce (both head and leaf), kale, spinach, peas, and radishes.  There shouldn’t be much guess-work here, as your garden should have already been planned out.  You should know where you’re planing things, how much space in between plants and rows, and when to plant.  The only thing I haven’t mentioned is planting depth and that chart will be listed below.  See I’ve already done all of the guess-work for you.  You’re welcome.  When using the Bio Dome Seed Starter you don’t need to worry about following the depth chart until you transplant outside.  Just put the seeds in the holes like I mentioned before.  You also should have started the flowers inside so depth doesn’t matter as much.  The only thing that matters is that the cell itself is completely under soil and the flower (or vegetable) is still growing on top of the soil.
