Lindsay...Lindsay...How does you garden grow??

Great question....I have NO IDEA! Quinn and I are really motivated this year to get our backyard fixed up and functional. Part of fixing it up includes a fully planted veggie garden, raspberries, and strawberries. Ambitious....yes, too ambitious....only time will tell (let's hope not)!

The problem I am running into with planting my garden; minus the snow and frigid temperatures; is a complete lack of knowledge about gardens and how to plant them. See my problem? So, I turn to my good friend GOOGLE and type in Utah Veggie Planting Chart; guess who come to my rescuse? "My Alma mater Utah State, my heart sings out to you". The USU vegetable specialist, Dan Drost, put together a chart outlining the vegetables that grow well in Utah! Not only does it tell you what to plant; but when to plant it, how deep to plant, row spacing, and how long it takes to produce!

Wish me luck on my planting ventures...I can only cross my fingers and wait!

Good Luck! We said sianarah to our garden and I couldn't be more excited! I needed that chart and I also needed to be blessed with a green thumb, but I wasn't. All of our veggies from last year were aweful and I really wish you the best of luck!
