Now is the time to get ready to enjoy all those fresh vegetables out of the garden and to save money in the process.
Now is also the time to get help doing it.
Each year, beginning on April 1, Roane County Cooperative Ministry offers garden grants to help pay for starting a vegetable garden.
This year, the Ministry is also teaming up with Roane County Agricultural Extension Agent Grant Palmer and the Master Gardeners to provide garden training on April 12.
Garden grants provide up to $30 per family to low-income residents of Roane County.
