Things You Should Be Planting Now | In The Garden

The most rewarding thing in the garden is starting something from seed and watching it grow.  To me it’s almost instant gratification because after just a couple days a sprout will emerge and I start to get so excited of what’s to come.  A couple of months ago I tried to start some seeds indoors without a grow light, they failed, but I learned from my mistakes.  Luckily though I’m in zone 7b and it’s time to start directly sowing seeds outdoors, now that I can do!


For all my readers in zones 7a and down let’s talk about what we can plant right now! [If you’re unsure what plant hardiness zone you’re in you can search with your zip code here: USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map]
