There is so much to be planted in the garden in April!  The Nurseries are overflowing with all varieties of peppers and tomatoes, eggplants, squash, cucumbers.  Beans, peas, melons, cucumbers, and squash are all easy from seed, but sometimes I get impatient and buy transplants.  Peppers are really slow to germinate, so I always buy transplants.

Snap and Lima Beans

Cantaloupe and other melons

Cauliflower (transplants)

Corn

Cucumber

Eggplant (transplants)

Warm season greens

Herbs (all)

Okra

Pepper transplants

Sweet Potato Slips
