'Dig In!': Exploring new plant varieties for this year's garden
The weather has been seesawing between warmish and freezing, dirty snow litters our streets and we’re all preparing ourselves to be disappointed by more snow, thus spring has arrived in Wisconsin. With the growing season on the horizon, many people are excited to get back into the garden.
But gardening expert Venice Williams says people may want to hold off on bringing out the shovels. Williams is the executive director of Alice's Garden and the Fondy Food Center and she joins Lake Effect every month for Dig In!, a series that explores the many benefits that come from cultivating and consuming plants.
For this spring season, Williams suggests waiting until the first week of April to begin seeding and recommends True Love Seeds and Ujamaa Seeds, to find new seeds. She also recommends the 2023 edition of the annual Whole Seed Catalog as a helpful guide for new and interesting seeds to buy.
