Cool season crops like kale, lettuce and cabbage can be planted in March.

Warm season crops like tomatoes, beans, peppers and squash should not be planted until near or after the last frost free date, which for our area is around May 10.

I have offered a series of classes over the course of the last couple of months via ZOOM. Each class was less than 30 minutes. I have recorded the presentations and those can be found on my website:

If you are unable to watch the videos, we can send you a copy of the PowerPoint presentation. Just call our office at 859-623-4072 and let us know.

The classes on the website include:

n How to Get Started

n Gardening in Small Spaces

n Backyard Fruit
