- “Spring planting” starts about October. Our best growing months are December-April.
- After that, some heat tolerant species survive or may thrive in shaded areas.
- If you do try to grow vegetables through the summer, remember that the hardest issue is transpiration – when the plants lose all their cellular moisture usually due to heat and wind. You may need to water twice a day if you live where there are high winds and sandy soil.
