A great place to live and work

Good news! This weekend is the day that Burpee says is the average date of last frost here in Union County, NJ! That doesn’t mean, of course, that we’re out of the woods yet, but odds are that your plants will be fine outside now. Plants may need to be covered if a frost is forecast, so pay attention to the weatherman for at least another few weeks!

What can you plant in the garden? This week, it’s safe to directly sow the following seeds into the ground:

  • arugula
  • beets
  • broccoli
  • broccoli raab
  • brussel sprouts
  • carrots
  • cauliflower
  • endive
  • kale
  • leeks
  • onions
  • peas
  • salad greens
  • spinach
  • radish
  • turnips

If you want to grow eggplant, tomatoes, or peppers this year, it’s time to start the seeeds indoors if you haven’t already. It’s also time to get the planting beds ready for those vegetables!

Happy Gardening!
