It’s time to Plant Annuals

Looks like planting of annual flowers and vegetables will begin in earnest today!  Temperatures the week of May 13-18 are forecast to be warm, and it looks like we will be past the greatest danger of frost.

As always, hold off on working soil until it is dry enough to crumble when dug, hoed or tilled.  Since soil temperatures are abnormally cold this spring, it is probably a good idea to wait a while longer before planting warm season vegetable crops like tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, beans and annual flowers such as impatiens.
