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)



Eggplant (transplants)

Warm season greens

Herbs (all)



Pepper transplants

Sweet Potato Slips


Summer Squash

Tomatoes and Tomatillos (Tomatillos need a mate, so plant at least 2)
