April is finally here and your garden soil is finally warming up! April is the best time to plant most of your vegetable seeds after your last frost. It’s still not too late to plant tomatoes and peppers from seeds as well.

Image result for gardening

Here’s a list of GREAT seeds to start planting N O W !

Beans:
Start planting both bush and pole beans now that the soil and air are warmed up. Try a continual 7-10 day sowing of different varieties. This will give you continual bean crops and not one large harvest with wasted crop.
Carrots:
Planting carrots by April will give an early summer crop..
Herbs:
Plant heat loving herbs like basil, oregano, thyme and sage.
Peppers:
Fresh, crisp peppers are a garden favorite. Peppers take up little space and can produce high yields when planted close together. Plant as many different varieties as possible. They come small, big, hot, mild, and an array of different colors.
Summer Squash:
Yum! Summer squash sowing in June will lead to fresh squash and zucchini in July and August.
Tomatoes:
The most popular garden vegetable. Growing tomatoes is not only fun but treats you to some of the best tasting fruits in the world. Tomatoes come in many colors, shapes, taste, and sizes. Grow a few varieties every year to find your favorites!

Enjoy beautiful Vail weather and start planting your seeds!

Our lovely local neighbor in Edwards at the Riverwalk is celebrating 20 outstanding years of business! If you haven’t ventured over to The Bookworm you’re missing out on a local gem! You’ll find the latest heart warming novels, cutesy local Colorado made gifts and a delicious menu of breakfast and lunch options.

Image result for the bookworm edwards co

Founded in 1996, The Bookworm of Edwards started in a van. Kathy Westover would travel between coffee shops selling new books to down-valley readers. The next summer, she partnered with former bookkeeper Neda Jansen to open an actual bricks-and-mortar bookstore in November 1997. The Bookworm drastically jumped in size from the back seat of a van to 700 square feet.

So the next time you’re in The Riverwalk pop into Gateway Real Estate and introduce yourself to one of our awesome local brokers! Then you can prowl across the street and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of Vail Valley’s independent bookstore, The Bookworm.
