I believe I have posted before on my garden woes here in Louisiana. I am so used to the Pacific Northwest climate that it has been hard for me to come to a good garden here in my new home. I have lived here about twenty years so what is the problem right?
Anyway this year I decided I was doing something about this. I love fresh green beans and garden to table tomatoes and this has been driving me nuts. So I did some research on the web and found the Farmers Ala mac and noticed they had a personalized calendar for gardening in your area. So I printed mine up and then signed up for email planting alerts.
I received my first email alert last week or so and then a what I can plant in the ground now just the other day.
Now this is the list of what I can start in the ground now. So today early I planted some tomatoes. This afternoon some cucumbers, squash, beet and green beans. I am trying some turnips too as aren’t they like beets? For the tomato I planted a Tree tomato and a Pink ponderosa, and one more heritage tomato. We will see how it goes. I also have to battle ants so used some cayenne pepper to place around my planting areas to see if it really does keep them from your plants.
I will keep a post up on how I do from time to time. In the meantime look up the Farmers Almanac gardening calendar .
