Many books I have read are for different gardening zones/growing regions, so am learning what does best in my little urban homestead and what doesn't. I don't get full day sun so am limited from growing well those sun loving vegetables, like peppers and tomatoes. However, I have learned that kale, swiss chard, lettuce, etc. do well.
I added hoops to one of the raised beds and was able to start some cool weather veggies earlier this year. End May - around the "Victoria Day" long weekend is traditionally the time when we can start planting annuals and vegetables, but can still run the risk of frost into early June.
Today is the start of the long weekend so will be busy in my garden.
