Host Richard Hentschel discusses why we wait to plant our warm loving vegetables in the family garden plot. Starting from seed or by transplants available from your favorite retail garden center. Vine crops can take up a lot of space, so consider bush types or provide a vertical trellis. Eggplant is another warm season crop and now comes in a number of shapes and colors. A trending vegetable is sweet potato and can be a challenge in northern gardens with the short gardening season.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
