When is a good time to garden?

This is our garden spot... - This is a picture of our garden spot we burned the other day, but because of the weather we have to wait a little bit before we start planting as you can see...ha

Just the other day we burned our garden spot, my husband thought it would be a good time to get started on it, its been warm and we've had Spring like weather for the past few weeks. Well we had some snow today, and this is a picture of our garden spot that we burned, as you can see the trees are all blooming too, look at my Redbud tree with is pretty pink flowers. So tell me when is a good time to garden? How about in your area are you able to get your garden ready or is the weather still interfering with your progress?

Our garden is now ready for planting but I think, it is not yet time to plant because we still have frost. As far as I know, here in my place the best time to plant if Late April or Early May.. but it depends also upon the plant that you are planning o grow. I did plant some seeds last week but did not grow yet until now. LOL.

What do you grow in your garden? I have a perennial garden, and almost everything is sprouting already. In fact, my clematis already has flower buds. This little bit of snow doesn't seem to have bothered anything. If you're starting from seed, it needs time to germinate anyway. Seed will sit in the ground until the soil temperatures go up at least to the 50's. You have to admit...with the weather, it seems like a good time to put in snow peas...

Haha...Snow peas, they would probably grow right about now huh? lol. We used to grow just about everything, we quit for awhile, but I think this year my husband is thinking about doing it again, thats why he burned the garden spot the other day, it was so nice that day, we didn't think we'd see it like it is today. Thanks.

Well, we just recently moved into a home we just bought a month ago, and have not really decided what we want to do with all of our space we have in the back yet, but we do know we need to do a lot of removing of stuff, etc. for sure. The people who sold the house had not really lived here for a while, so things are in a little disarray outside for sure. But we will probably start considering what we need to do come April.

For me the good time to garden is during the cold weather which comes from November to February. There are also some rains during this summer so the plants grow quite faster. It could not be during rainy season because the flood comes when the rain is too heavy and continuous and it destroys the garden. It could not be during very hot season as well as plants get burned with the heat and ultimately die.
