Gardening In Minot ND

MyGreenhouse I can't say that I've figured out a magic date to start plants in the house to be transferred later into the garden here in North Dakota but I'm thinking now might be a good time.

 I've tried as early as the first day that the sun starts it's swing back towards longer days... that was a disaster.

 You don't want to start to early or your plants just get tall and spindly, then fall over and die.

We are probably two months from the garden actually being ready for planting. Currently there is about two feet of snow on the ground and the frost is most likely down close to six feet below the surface. All of that adds up to planting indoors now and also some re-potting in about thirty days.

St. PoochieSo why do it? With our short growing season it's nice to get a head start so we can enjoy what we plant longer whether it be flowers or produce. After a long winter it also brings me pleasure to see those sprouts break the surface and bring life into the new year.

If you really want to know the key to successfully starting your garden early I'd like to recommend you check with our locally owned Lowe's Garden Center.

Good morning Bob. I am really looking forward to getting dirty in my garden but too much snow still.

It really is satisfying Michael Jacobs . We plant a lot of vegetables so it's also very satisfying in July when we see the fruit develop and again in August when we can start dining on it.

Me too Sheila Anderson . I really appreciate the early part of gardening before the insects get out there too. As far as snow, we have about 2 feet on the ground now and we are very thankful that this current storm is going to miss us (by only about 30 miles).

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm -  I don't know much about this but I remember my parents putting tomato plant seeds in containers and placing them by the window.  I think it was February.

Me too Grant Schneider but did you know that what our parents did won't work today? Today's windows have UV treated glass so furniture won't fade. That in turn makes the light nearly useless to plants.

Bob,

You can always build cold frames that act as mini greenhouse outside that really get plants going.  A

Morning Bob.

Two feet of snow at this time of the year?  WOW! I' so glad I live just a little south of where you do

I've moved all my house plants outside, Bob, and hope that's where they will stay until November or December. How is your North Dakota weather now that it's the end of April?

It's a great idea to start with seedlings indoors until you can transplant.
