April Gardening

April – Towards in the middle of April you will want to start acclimating some of the plants you’ve been growing indoors to the outdoors.  Start putting broccoli, cauliflower, and cantaloup outside during the day everyday for five to seven days and back inside at night to toughen up the plant before being transplanted outside.  After five to seven days have passed you will want to plant those plants outside, permitting the weather is not terrible.  These are the fruits and vegetables you will want to plant outside at the end of April: Beans (bush and pole if warm enough), broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumber, cantaloupe, onion (if buying in sets), and summer squash.  When planting you should know where you’re planing things, how much space in between plants and rows, and the depth the seed or cell should be planted in the ground.  Make sure to reference the gardening charts to remember where to plant specific varieties of fruits and vegetables.  The plants should all be getting watered at least twice a week so if you’re not getting rain plan accordingly.

My orchid bloomed for the third time!  (Note that this will not be transplanted outside.  It's just for looks)
