Happy Spring, everyone! With the snow (mostly) all melted and the temperatures inching their way above freezing, we at Total Home Supply are getting ready to garden. It’s just so great to be able to walk outside and smell the earth again, and we can’t wait to get down in the dirt and plant some new flowers and vegetables.

But not so fast — new plants shouldn’t go in the ground until at least May 15th. If your green thumb is itching now, though, don’t worry; the end of March/beginning of April is an ideal time to plant your seeds and get your garden started indoors!

Seeds are what we’re really looking to plant at this time of year, because the more of a head start they get inside, the better chance they have of surviving outdoors. Whether you have any seeds you saved from last year (tomato and marigold seeds, for example, are easy to extract and save) or are working with packaged seeds only, you’re going to want to get them started as soon as possible. So, let’s get to it!
