My grandfather, Charlie Carter, was a great planner and planter and he had many tips.
You may have read one of his gardening tips here.
This is a continuation of that one. In less than a month people will start gardening in Montana.
Gardening in Montana takes just as much planning as Montana Elk Hunting. Grampa Charlie always said that if you plant a garden and expect to be gone for long stretches you should plant your onions in the same hills as your potatoes.
That way, while you are gone, the onions will make the potatoes eyes water and you can skip the watering.
