Get your garden ready

Spring can be a great to time get your garden up to snuff. In particular, it's not too late to end March by sowing peas, spinach, radishes, turnips and Swiss chard seeds in your garden. According to KIRO Radio's Ciscoe Morris, work in about a cup of organic vegetable food and a half-cup bone meal per five-row feet before planting. It's also a good time to sow the seeds the annual flowers like Bachelor's buttons, calendula, California poppy, forget-me-nots and sweet peas directly into the garden. Ciscoe says to work organic flower food into the soil before sowing the seed.
