During our dry, chilly January, frost is still a factor. The majority of garden beds remain covered, which Adam Cole said is a good thing.
“But in general, you want to avoid working the soil when it's wet. You can really compact, do damage to your soil. It's better to stay off it,” Adam Cole said. Cole works at Down to Earth garden store in Eugene.
Cole said if you want to add something, azomite and bone meal can go a long way to boosting your plot before spring.
“Think about what you're going to do with your garden, map it out. Look at seed catalogues. It's not quite time to put seeds out,” Cole said.
