Greetings from Bellingham

by Eric Pfaff, former Earth Ministry Intern

Did you miss the early spring plantings of vegetables? Have you been jealously watching your neighbors' gardens grow from patches of soil into ripe, red tomatoes and thick green beans?

While there's nothing that can replace a full summer of gardens, there are vegetables you can plant now for a late harvest and some "baby vegetables." Spinach, lettuce, arugula, beets, carrots, and radishes are all popular, the first three for doing better in cooler weather. More quick information can be found here, a la my good friend Martha Stewart (and her syndicated column).

And just remember: There's no time like the present... to start gardening!
