Monthly Tips

April
It's time you can begin planting warmer weather crops like tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers. Wait to plant peppers until the middle or end of April; when low temperatures are consistently 55 F or above. If you have not yet refurbished the soil in your vegetable garden, till or turn in a 1 to 2 inch layer of organic matter or compost before planting. If you do not make your own compost you can use mushroom compost, composted cow manure or some other form of organic matter.
