Is May too late to start a garden?

Peppers and chives

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Mid-May is here and for those that are just starting to think about getting their garden going, they wonder, is it too late?

It is not too late!  Actually, for the Midwest, Mother’s Day is the bell weather date for being able to safely plant annuals and veggies are for the most part annuals.

This is the perfect time to get cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, squash, melons, tomatoes in the ground.  They love the warmer ground temps!

Mediterranean herbs are also heat lovers.  Rosemary, sage, thyme, sweet bay, basil, chives are all great bets for planting in summer.
