Plant Crops Based on Temperature

It’s been a cold wet spring so far, making now a good time to start your vegetable garden.  Cold weather crops – lettuce, peas and onions, for example – can be planted now.  But many vegetables everyone loves: tomatoes, beans and squash, want soil temperatures of 60 or 70 degrees (or higher), which may appear until June.  Lay out your garden and put up a fence now, but delay purchasing pots of tomato, pepper, melon and other hot weather crops until it is closer to the time to set them out.  Your garden will be more bountiful for starting at the right time.
