A Message From Kim We’re all living in a strange reality right now, and not an easy one at that. My heart is with our first responders, essential ON THE COVER: 219 Edward Street W, Newcastle workers and anyone who loves someone serving on the front line. Usually, we are celebrating the awakening of the Earth and our communities, but instead we are facing a Spring is unlike any other. We can’t celebrate the things we usually do, or hug the ones we care about - but we are all spending more time in our homes than ever before. Our homes are our foundation, they are where we find comfort in challenging times, and I hope you can find just a little bit of comfort in these ideas and activities you can do to make this time feel a little more normal and bring a little joy to your life! Wishing your families safety & wellness, and that we can see each other (closer than 6 feet) again soon! - Kim NOW PLAYING Did you hear the news? Team Alldread and Ready, Set, Staged have a new home!

GETTING STARTED TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST VEGETABLE GARDEN 1 2 3 4 5 Start Small. Pick a few things to try growing first before ordering the whole seed catalog. Easy vegetables like lettuce, potatoes and peas make rewarding first garden choices. Choose your plot wisely. When choosing where to put your garden consider the space you have, light and moisture conditions as well as whether or not you need to bring in soil. Loosen Up. Vegetables grow best in soft, loose soil. Once you have your garden spot picked out spend some time tilling up the soil. Grab some compost for even more heat and nutrients for your plants. Get a head start. For your first year as a vegetable gardener, purchasing plants that are already growing from your local garden center or nursery is much easier than starting from seed. Be Patient! Gardens take time – and your veggies aren’t going to grow overnight, so be patient, and be sure to follow watering guidelines for your veggies.
