Planting   Calendar

PLEASE READ  FIRST !


This calendar is for use as a general guideline.  Even the various garden books do not agree on all their recommended planting times.

Bear in mind, are you planting an early bearing variety or a late one?  Timing of planting and particular varieties are important factors, as well as, consider if you are planting seeds, seedlings, or bareroot.  If planting say in August for fall crops, you may need to start your seeds in partial shade, perhaps even at home to control moisture. 

In any event nature loves to keep us guessing with earlier than normal winters or longer than normal summers! Both excessive cool or warm temperatures may cause some vegetable varieties to "bolt" early (go to seed), or make seed sprouting difficult. Even whether it is the first half or the second half of a given month can make a difference.  

Enjoy and expect the unexpected!
