Produce is in short supply in some grocery stores. The smart answer to combat this problem is to start your own garden.

You need to go NOW to get those seeds, though, and here’s why.

First of all, my husband and I were at the Garden Center at Lowe’s Home Improvement the other day, and it was overrun with people. Everyone knows this is the time to get seeds, so these seeds are going to start going fast.

Second, NOW is the time to plant a lot of those seeds. Plants that will do best when planted in the middle of spring are:

Tomatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Summer Squash, Summer Peas, Pumpkins, Okra, Peppers, Melons, Cucumber, Gourds, Eggplant, Corn, and Beans.

There are some plants that do better when harvest in the fall — BUT they may need to be planted soon, in order to be ready for the fall harvest:

Broccoli, Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, English Peas, Kale, Parsley, Radish, Spinach, and Turnips.

Now, don’t take my word for when to plant everything. It might be at different times for your area of the country. A good source for planting veggies is available on The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The THIRD reason you want to go get seeds NOW — many states are banning the sale of non-essential items.

Seeds qualify as non-essential items. Don’t ask me why. I don’t make the rules.

So, get yourself to your local Garden Center, and get your seeds NOW. You will only thank yourself later.
