Happy Easter, Here's what the think about over the long weekend and in April:

Hey there gardening enthusiasts! If you're wondering what to do in your vegetable garden this April, we've got you covered. As the weather starts to warm up, there are plenty of jobs to keep you busy.

First things first, it's time to prepare the soil. Get rid of any weeds and debris, and add some compost or organic matter to give your plants the nutrients they need. Trust us, they'll thank you for it later.

If you're looking to plant some cool-season crops like lettuce, spinach, or peas, now's the time to do it. These plants love the cooler weather, so make sure to follow the instructions on the seed packet and give them the space they need.

For those of you who want to grow warm-season crops like tomatoes or peppers, you should start the seeds indoors in April. This way, they'll be ready to transplant outside once the weather warms up. Make sure to keep them in a warm, sunny spot so they can grow strong and healthy.

Unfortunately, there's still a risk of frost in April, so it's important to protect your young plants. You can cover them with a frost cloth or even an old blanket to keep them warm and safe.

As your plants start to grow, they'll need more water, so make sure to water them regularly. Don't overdo it though, as too much water can cause root rot. And don't forget to fertilize them too! A balanced fertilizer or organic matter like compost or manure will help them grow even stronger.

Finally, don't be afraid to prune or thin out your plants if needed. This will help promote healthy growth and prevent overcrowding.

So there you have it, folks! Get your hands dirty and get started on your vegetable garden this April. Happy planting!
