Gardening Techniques

Hey iTalki Community,

Here in Michigan, the temperatures are rising.  I'm beginning to get an itch to get outside and begin my garden.

However, it is still too cold here.  So, I begin seeds inside the house, and then transplant them outside when it is warm enough.

Does anybody have advice, or techniques that you use when preparing your garden?

Altay Region, Siberia, Russia.

We have to seed and growing Peppers, Eggplant and Tomatoes for a couple of months indoors. 

Others can grow outdoor without any preparations.

Garden's time lasts from the beginning of May to end of September.

But the weather could be wrong sometimes.

Thanks a lot to Christopher Columbus:

Currently, I am looking at this timeline to plant inside:

April:  Lettuce, Peas, Peppers, Tomatoes

May: Beans, Corn, Squash, Cucumber

That'll give me time to re-establish some of the straw bales that I plant in, and build some garden boxes.

Oh, our temperatures rose at the beginning of March too and I planted some tulip bulbs and marigold seeds before our house back then but a few days ago we had a frost and even a little snow! I'm now afraid the seeds will die. Anyway, what plants are you preparing your garden for?

Yes, we used to... But, It depends on geography and we have a little bit different.

What plants are you talking about?

Belka, that sounds fantastic.  This time of year brings my soul to life.

I don't have any grapes... the only fruit that we do is raspberries.  Great for jams and pies.

This week, we have begun harvesting the honey from last years honeybees.  It's so tasty and healthy.
