Early Planting

Saturday we decided to plant the vegetable garden about two-three weeks earlier than normal. The reason we wait until practically Memorial Day weekend is often we get a frost or just rainy cold weather, killing plants or not allowing for growth. Mold also can occur with cool rainy weather. Of course this coming week is suppose to be in the 50's, rainy, gloomy, wait we normally see in April.
We have still a small portion of the garden to plant, with beets, corn and onions. A benefit to planting this early is now I do not have to worry about planting during Memorial Day weekend or falling on a weekend with a Yankee game.
