Today is the first day of spring, although here in Texas it has felt like spring for the last couple of weeks! The beginning of spring means that it is gardening season; this past weekend I made a list of the vegetables and herbs I wanted to grow this year. I am definitely planting some tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, and bell peppers. I can’t wait until I get to make fresh garden salsa! A tip that I am going to try this year is to plant Marigolds around my garden; the roots of the Marigolds produce a chemical that repels certain types of beetles and other bugs. What are you planting in your garden? Do you have any gardening tips to share?
