Following up from yesterday blog, we said we would tell you what you can plant in your garden in the early spring and what you can not plant, well that all depends on where you live, the reason I say that is the weather. Here in Missouri our winters are so cold the ground will freeze, and it takes a lot of sun and warm weather to warm up the soil so the seeds you plant will come up. And if you choose to plant to early all your plants and seeds will die.
You cannot plant most seeds or plants until the soil warm up, here in Missouri you are safe to plant most every thing you want by the 2nd week of May. But if you live in Florida you can plant just about anything you want all year round, because they have warm or hot weather all year round.
Good news for all of us is, no matter where we live in the USA the seed companies have on the back of their pack of seeds a map of the USA and it is marked off in zone you pick out the state you live in and what ever the zone is that is when you are safe to plant that seed, not only that the seed companies will tell you how to plant their seed, the depth and how far apart to space the rows, you see they want to make it easy for you too so you will keep on buying their seeds.
The name of the seed company we like is FERRY-MORSE they have been around for a very long time, weather we are planting vegetables or flowers we always use FERRY-MORSE seeds.
Here in Missouri early we can plant just a few things such as, green onions, lettuce, turnips, radishes, flowers, and maybe a few more things, but that is just about it until our soil warms up in May.
