the far southern regions. Planning is the order of the month and
should be done with good thought and research. In the far southern
regions its time to get soil testing done and soil preparation
started. Its time to apply organic amendments such as rock dust
and compost. In the north if the soil is not frozen take a sample
of soil to your county agent to have tested. When you get the results
back call us at Bradfield Organics® for an organic recommendation.

It would be a good time to contact your county agent for a zone
chart so you will know what zone you are in and what plants or
seeds to plant when and where. Also your extension office will
have a lot of good information on which plants to get for your
zone and area. There is a wealth of information on the web and
seed catalogs. Just think Organic!
