The Q&A Archives: Planting Vegetables

Question: Where can I find info on when to plant certain vegetables? I bought several of your vegetables seeds and was wondering what season do I start planting and what do I need to do before planting?

Answer: Soil preparation should be the first step in vegetable gardening. Remove weeds and debris from the garden bed, then spread 3"-4" of organic matter over the surface of the soil. Use aged-compost or aged-manure, and dig or rototil it in to a depth of about 8". Here's a website with a planting schedule for your area:
