Hey everyone!

So I started a garden this Fall. I put in five raised beds and filled them with good topsoil. In the spring I plan to plant the asparagus, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, and blueberries.

Where can I get the plants and what varieties grow best in Wisconsin's cool, short season? I am also interested in planting some veggies. Heirloom tomatoes would be great. Where can I get seeds and when is the best time to start the seeds indoors?

A lot of questions I know, but I would really like help in growing a successful garden. I figure the best experience is out there somewhere.

Thanks, Kevin Gardner (yes, this is my real name)

Poll

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
