Richard Hentschel discusses how early farmers and gardeners are going to get to plant corn, beans and our vegetables with Russ Higgins, Ag Educator from the Northern Illinois Research Farm. Typically planting is the mid to the third week of April. Richard reminded listeners that those seed packets give us all the information needed to get our plants and seed in the ground, how deep and how far apart for example. Russ reminded us about being patient and making sure plants get off to a good start.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
