Plant Now for Summer Harvest!

April is the month to get your vegetable garden ready for summer. Warm season vegetables, including squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, and corn, can be planted after the threat of frost has passed. The average last frost date for our area is around April 15, though we cannot rule out a light frost later in April, so be prepared to protect newly planted annuals and vegetables by covering them with an old sheet or floating row cover if frost is predicted.
