Richard Hentschel, host of Green Side Up, discusses those very early and early vegetables that can be planted in early April thru late April. To get the most from our gardens, we need to start early and continue to garden late into the fall season. Lots of vegetables can be harvest once school starts through our hard frost and freezes. Richard provides lots of examples of those early vegetables and encourages successive planting to take advantage of any open garden space throughout the season.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
