Planted cabbage, collards, broccoli and cauliflower. Also 150+ onions. May have to cover them a couple nights,but they can handle a bit of a freeze.

Hello from Alabama!

Late April or even May before we can even think about a garden.

Don't forget some garlic. Go to the store and buy a couple of cloves. Break them up and plant maybe 4 inches apart, just make sure you plant the root end down. They are ready to harvest when the greens brown off. Those greens also make great salad greens when chopped up.

I'm thinking late June or July the frost ought to be out of the ground here in central Wisconsin, so I got time to watch others work.

Well, We got up to 15F this afternoon with some sun, and it is back down to 6F now. -2F last night. We lit the fireplace today to help out the boiler.

I'm glad we rarely get that cold. In 30+ years I've lived in Alabama the deepest frost I can recall was a bit under 2 inches. If we do get a week of below freezing temps we can put plastic over the grow beds.

Grandpa Love ,

It must be nice to live that far south that you can plant now . We won't think of planting here in south central Ky. until at least the middle of March at the earliest for the most part. What part of Alabama do you live in ? I take it that by a comment located a little father down the post about the frost and as long as you have lived in Alabama statement that you are not originally from there ? Thanks !

Born in MD. Folks moved to Central AL when I was 14. Been here every since. We live in Sylacauga, which is in Talladega county. Actually we planted our winter garden late, but it should be good.

Grandpa love,
Heading to Florida soon. I Hear crappie are biting. I enjoy going through Alabama instead of Georgia. Where in Alabama do you live? I'll honk as I go by. I think I made the trip in late March and stopped off at a roadside produce stand and picked up form large sweet onions. I thought they were better than Validela.

Look up Sylacauga Al. We live real close to where hwy 280 and 231 meet. Lots of folks going to central FL use 280 to miss Atlanta. Stop and visit, biscuits are always good!

I have never had much luck with those crops in the spring even though the ag center recommends them.
They do better for me as a fall crop.

About time to get your tomatoes seedlings started also.
