Now well go into
more detail, showing individual plants and how they'll be spaced in the
spacing between plants:
beans (pole) ......... 6"
lettuce (leaf) ......... 3"
squash (bush) ...... 18"
tomatoes (bush) ... 24"
can be planted 3 to 4 weeks before the average last frost date.
And finally, heres
the planting schedule:
- Early spring
(3 to 4 weeks before last frost date): Sow peas on north side
- Two weeks
before last frost date: Make first sowing of lettuce. Make
successive sowings of lettuce every 2 weeks.
the last frost date: Sow squash, cucumber, and bean seeds.
- One week
after last frost date: Plant tomato transplants (and squash
and cucumber transplants if you are using them instead of direct sowing.)
garden takes shape, well tuck in some annual flowers along the borders.
create a detailed planting calendar in the next class.)
