Uwharrie Farm Planting Schedule: March - April

 freshly dug potatoes       Broccoli       Tomatoes      

 We are in USDA Planting Zone 7  

Spring is almost here!  It is time to review the planting schedule for March - April

Plant tomato, pepper, watermelon, canteloupe, cucumber, okra and pumpkin seed in 3 inch plant pots to grow your own plants for the summer garden.  Corn can be planted in smaller plant cells.  Place pots and  plant cells in a greenhouse or approximately 2 inches under florescent lights.  Watermelon, canteloupe, cucumber, okra and pumpkin seed can be planted directly in the garden later, however growing plants in pots gives me a head start before the outdoor temperatures are warm enough.

Plant carrot, beet, and garden pea seed directly in the garden.

Plant cabbage, lettuce, onion, broccoli and strawberry (for berries next spring) plants plus shallots and potatoes in the garden.

Happy Gardening in 2010!
