This seems to be a similar year as 1941 during World War II in the fact that Victory Gardens are popular. Now they’re calling them “COVID-19 Victory Gardens.” This year, grow your own food and grow enough to share with others. It’s a great project to do while you’re at home where you can stay safe in your own yard. If you’re new to planting a garden, you may be wondering how to do it the right way.
It’s best to plant your garden after the danger of frost has passed. In the Midwest, we’re in Zone 6, and frost danger usually ends by early to mid-May. So now is the best time to get your garden plot ready. The preparation is important to have a good crop of vegetables.
