So. California & Inland Valleys -March / April Planting Guide

Post  No_Such_Reality on 3/19/2016, 9:48 am

Hi there!

On my its already summer veggie planting time.  I'm way behind again and have been struggling with hot days, cold nights and on going drought getting much to sprout in my beds.  I've under watered my first set of indoor seed starter and they mostly failed, then over compensated and drowned my next set.  Third set will be a charm right?

Oh well, with the hot weather this year, I hope I'm not too far behind.

To help us all along, I'll resurrect Chopper's old planting guides.  Looks like you can probably squeeze in a last cold season veggies if you're lucky.  If the heat holds, we can go to Melons!

What to plant in March:

Beans, Bush
Beans, Pole
Onions/Garlic sets
Squash, summer
Squash, Winter
Tomato plants

What to plant for April
Beans, Bush
Beans, Pole
Lima Beans
Onions/Garlic sets
Squash, summer
Squash, Winter
Tomato plants

Oh, and if you're curious and need a good laugh on how bad the seed starting was, here's a hint, I went 0 for 18 on green beans!  I did go 4 for 16 on sunflowers. 2 of 12 for beets, etc.

I'm pretty confident I'm just over/under watering, but I am trying newspaper pots.  So hopefully the LA Times isn't treating their paper with anything.
