planning a vegetable garden?

When we’re mapping out our fields, we try to consider each crop’s specific needs – timing of planting, spacing of seeds, ideal temperature for germination, irrigation needs, and on and on. As vegetable gardeners know, planning for a long list of crops can become quite an involved process, made a little easier with the right resources.

I recently came across this Vegetable Planting Guide on the High Mowing Seeds website – a handy one-page cheat sheet to stick up on the wall of your tool shed.  It tells you which crops should be seeded directly in the ground, and which crops you’re better off transplanting. For each crop, it also tells you how many days it takes the seed to germinate, and other important details like plant spacing and seeding rates. 

We can help you grow a successful garden this year!
