Spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast and it's time to start planting your cold weather veggies in the garden. I like to plant lots of lettuce which can withstand the cold nights of early spring and yields farm fresh salad every day for months!
If garden pests start to become a nuisance, try this home made remedy: combine a teaspoon of veggie oil, a teaspoon of dish soap and a gallon of water, and fill up a spray bottle. Spray directly on plants and watch the bugs run!
Another natural remedy is to purchase lady bugs and spread them all over the plants in your garden. Lady bugs eat the bad bugs that destroy all your crops. You can buy 1500 of these little beauties online at www.gardeningzone.com for only $6.50.
