  1. I have a couple questions - I want to plant some sweet peas by seed - am I too late? Also I want to plant some poppy seeds as well - is it a good time? Thanks!

  3. What do you mean by "Set Out Plants Only"?

    1. "Set out plants" means stick 'em in the ground. Don't try starting a tomato plant from seed in June and expect fruit...but it depends where you live. And the variety of tomato.

  4. Transplant vegetable plants into the ground or in their permanent container. Don't try starting these plants from seed too late in their growing season. Typical growing season, that is. With climate change, all bets are off.

  5. Farmer Fred! You're back! Forgive me if I just couldn't find it, but I've been using your planting calendar from 2014 because I couldn't find more recent ones. Even so, it's been so helpful! I'm so delighted to have one for 2019, esp with this very wet spring. Thank you!! I have one question: could you perhaps add fennel to the list? I love growing it but I've had mixed success -- fab crops one year, pitiful ones the next, and I think it's my timing. Very grateful for your generosity in putting this together and sharing it.
