This may not seem like the best time of year for a video about starting your first garden bed, but now is a actually a great time. Starting now will allow you to build your soil gradually without having to buy a lot of compost and other amendments in the spring. You’ll also avoid a last minute rush to get your bed setup before spring planting.
