If you guessed green–You win!

Spring has sprung and although our average last freeze date is April 15th, the long-range forecast  looks like it we might have freezing temps later next week.

I know it’s tempting to plant the garden right away, and I do have broccoli, onions, and lettuce planted, but I hold off on the warm season crops like tomatoes, corn, etc, until the end of the month.

yummy broccoli

I only want to plant once.

Have a great weekend!

p.s. I still have some seeds to give away!  Check out this post

About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

  4. Down in these hear parts (Florida), I grow broccoli, cabbage and lettuce only in the winter. It got to 80 degrees in the house last night so I turned on the air-conditioning.
