What to do now to be ready for spring gardening in Gaston County

I don’t know about you, but last Saturday, when the temperature hit 72 degrees, and the sun was shining, I got the bug…the spring bug for sure! So, even though it’s still just February, and our ground is a bit cool for vegetables, it is the perfect time to start some seeds indoors.

But you need to get on this ASAP! Since we are in zone 7ish, starting some seeds indoors will give you a head start for your spring-summer garden. I love perusing through garden catalogs, looking for some heirloom or unusual plants. But if you are going this route, you will need to choose plants that will transfer to the ground in April to ensure they get a good start. Heirloom tomatoes come to mind, so if you want to start some seeds, March will be the time to start.
