Spring seems firmly in place…

Now that Spring seems to have settled in, plant warm season vegetables: beans of any variety, cantaloupe, cucumber, eggplant, okra, field peas, peppers, squash, tomatoes and watermelon. If you want to try corn, plant two rows since corn is wind-pollinated. This arrangement will help improve pollination. Herbs also should go into your garden now. Disturb your prepared bed as little as possible to preserve soil structure when you install seed or seedlings. Water to thoroughly moisten soil. And mulch bare soil between plants and rows. After your garden is in place, check frequently to ensure the soil is moist but not soggy.
Happy Gardening!
