Garden Tip of the Day

Pay more attention to the weather conditions as to when to plant rather than the seed guidelines. Remember the guidelines are just that....guidelines. There are no set in stone rules when it comes to growing a garden and harvesting a good crop. Much of it is dependent on how well the gardener pays attention to the weather and signs of nature around them. One rule of thumb is that you don't start summer vegetables until the leaves on the oaks are at least 2 inches long. The guidelines for our area say April to start most summer crops. It's March and the leaves of the oak trees are well over 2 inches long. I think I will pay attention to the oak trees. Gardening requires the ability to adapt as each year is different.
