Make vegetable gardening part of your long weekend

Got plans this Memorial Day weekend? If you haven’t already, make time to plant a summer vegetable garden. The ground is finally warm (and dry) enough to prompt transplants to grow quickly. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, cucumbers and beans will appreciate warm days and nights, too.

▪ If just starting your garden now, choose varieties that need the least time to mature, preferably under 75 days.

▪ From seed, plant beans, radishes, corn, pumpkins and squash (both summer and winter). Also plant basil and other annual herbs.

▪ To speed up your garden’s production, plant seedlings for cucumber, pepper, eggplant and tomatoes.

▪ Transplant petunias, marigolds and perennial flowers such as astilbe, columbine, coneflowers, coreopsis, dahlias, rudbeckia and verbena.
