New in MN!

Post  milaneyjane on 3/18/2010, 4:39 pm

Hello all,

I am a newby here at SFG, but not to gardening. Last year I spent my summer weeding, weeding, and weeding some more my three large gardens. I am going to convert some of the gardens this year to SFG's for the sole reason of less weeding. I have a few neighbors that are converting over to a few SFG's as well so it should be a fun process. I am excited to read and hear from other experienced SFG'ers here on the forums.

Hi Rebecca
I'm new to the whole thing, so maybe a fellow Minnesotan can help me along?
I'll be planting 2 4x4 beds - starting out small and managable.

I'm not sure when to go about planting anything. When the pkg says "as soon as the soil can be worked"...does that mean right now (if my beds were ready of course)? Or is it too early here in MN?
