Can I start my garden now?  Absolutely! Now is the best time to jump start your garden.  Pick a spot that gets 8 to 10 hours of sunlight a day.   And don’t forget about the water.  Your garden needs water to grow, approximately one to two inches a week and unless you feel the need to drag gallons of water make sure you have a hose that can reach.

Think outside the box.  Notice that my garden is on the outside of the fence. Consider building a raised bed or maybe make vegetables a part of your flower bed.  There are no  rules as long as the spot gets plenty of sunlight and moisture you can be successful.

One last important reminder: CALL YOUR UTILITY COMPANY!  In Illinois it is callled Julie. A  free service that comes to your house to locate all underground lines.
