Vegetable Gardens

  • March is the time to start cool weather veggies such as: Potatoes, Onions, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, Peas and root crops like Carrots, Radishes, etc.
  • May is for your warm weather crops like Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers, Watermelon, etc., if the weather is cooperating.  Warmer weather helps our plants grow better and faster. Cooler, rainy weather can cause mold & mildew which can inhibit plant growth. Use caution when it is cooler, don’t over water.
  • For best results fertilize regularly, watch for calcium deficiency (black on bottom of vegetable), and watch out for bugs that can cause so much damage.
  • After cleaning out the garden.  Put a 2 or 3″ layer of compost on your garden in the fall.  Let it set all winter.  You are now ready to rototill and plant your veggies.
