Q. What vegetables can we plant now in the garden?
A. If you want to try something unique try planting these warm season vegetables in small peat pots in a soil trench in the garden covered with plastic. Warm up the trench with plastic first before you put them in the trench. I will post some pictures.
|Trenches made for tomato plants|
|Compost is added to the soil in the trench and mixed|
|Tomato seedling germinating in the trench under plastic and slit (not hole)|
is made to release heat
|After March 15 or last danger of frost the lower leaves on the tomato plant|
are removed, the soil in the trench is collapsed around the stem and a hole
cut in the plastic to allow the plant to emerge. I usually leave the plastic and mulch.
