Starting growing vegetables – jobs for March

March is a great time to start preparing for growing vegetables. Here are a few things you can do in March to get ready:

Choose a garden site: Choose a spot in your garden that gets plenty of sunlight (at least 6 hours a day) and has well-drained soil.

Plan your garden: Decide what vegetables you want to grow, and how many plants you need. You can use a crop planner to help with this.

Test your soil: Get a soil test to determine the pH and nutrient levels of your soil. This will help you determine what you need to add to the soil to make it fertile and conducive to growing vegetables.

Improve your soil: If necessary, improve your soil with compost or other organic matter to improve its fertility and structure.

Start seeds indoors: If you want to get a head start on the growing season, you can start some vegetable seeds indoors in March. This will give the seeds a chance to germinate and grow before transplanting them into your garden later in the season.

Clean up the garden: Clean up any dead leaves, branches, and other debris from your garden site. This will help to prevent any pest or disease problems.

Order seeds or plants: If you haven’t already, order any seeds or plants you need for your garden. This will ensure that you have everything you need when it’s time to start planting.

By doing these things in March, you will be well on your way to growing a successful vegetable garden.

Good luck!
