ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Spring isn't far away. If you're considering a garden this year, now's the time to plan.

The Extension Service can help you with that. The agency offers advice on everything from teen pregnancy to bug problems to how to grow a garden to put food on your family table.

Agent James Morgan says he's seen an increased interest in growing small gardens in the past year.

 "Last year, we did service programs on growing gardens and from what I've heard, people have started their small gardens," he said.

You can do a 6x8 plot on the side of your house and you can continue to grow vegetables throughout the summer. More people look to having fresh fruit and vegetables for their families."

Beyond those looking to plant small gardens, the Extension Service also offers free advice to farmers who grow thousands of acres of crops.
