Time To Plant Warm-loving Vegetables

Posted by John Fulton -

We are in the planting time for warm-loving vegetables, which is May 10 through June 1. Of course, the weather has been slow to cooperate this year, and warm-loving may be a misnomer with the cool weather this week. Warm season vegetables include Lima beans, cucumber, eggplant, melons, pepper plants, sweet potato slips, pumpkins, and squash. You can also put out successive plantings of snap beans, beets, carrots, and sweet corn to extend the season.
