Garden Reminders

Posted by John Fulton -

We are now in the middle of the correct planting time for the warm loving vegetables for our gardens. This would include lima beans, cucumber, eggplant, melons, peppers, summer squash, winter squash, and pumpkins. Pumpkins for use as fall ornamentals should be planted around Father's Day so they have less chance of rotting before fall display. Believe it or not, we're at the proper timing for fall garden plantings. That means potatoes, kale, and some others. Some of the planting dates overlap this time of year. That basically means plant it, but you can expect harvest to be closer to fall.
