April Gardening and what to plant.

According to the Farmers Almanac and the the website Garden Helper, here's a small list of planting, weeding and transplanting. Plant til the end of April. Carrots, turnips, beets, onions and radishes, lettuce, asparagus, peas and potatoes . Good time for root crops and Vine crops such as Strawberry's. Time to kill briars, weeds, poison ivy and other plant pests. Just a wee bit of a tip.

We are still in Earth Day mode here at the bed and breakfast, we don't have an awesome garden, we do support our locallaly grown farmers at the farmers market in the Saugatuck Center for the Arts in Saugatuck on Fridays and Mondays. We purchase organic whenever possible most of our produce coems from withing a 30 mile radius in the summer season.

This is a great planet to hang out on, lets all enjoy it and may the air we breathe the water we drink and the food chain be safe forever more. Come on over and hang out with us for a few days if you get the chance, it's always nice here at the Sherwood Forest bed and Breakfast.
