March marks the beginning of early spring, bringing on warmer weather and longer days. It is a good time to begin preparing your soil for the busy growing season ahead. Find or mix together the right combination of soil ingredients: peat moss or coconut coir, perlite or vermiculite, and organic compost, manure or worm castings. This can all be found at your local nursery or plant supply store. If you already have an established garden bed, top it up with organic compost, manure or worm castings and be careful not to work soil that is heavily saturated with water, it can cause clumping and compaction.
Start direct seeding any cool weather tolerant veggies and transplant any vegetables you started inside in February. Continue starting some plants indoors. It is a good idea to approach early Spring with caution and have row covers and cold cloches handy to protect your veggies from frost.
