Novice gardeners may be wondering when to break out their shovels and seeds. You will quickly find an answer with this planting calendar from the 02-10-2017 Scout Report. Since its feature, the site has added a resource list for gardening during a pandemic, inviting readers to "grow together" through unpredictable times.
Anyone who has planted a vegetable garden knows that the ideal time to plant can vary widely by geographic location. The National Gardening Association has created this tool, the Garden Planting Calendar, to help. This website will appeal to new gardeners as well as experienced gardeners in new cities. Simply type in a select zipcode, landmark, or city to access a handy chart of when and how to plant all varieties of vegetables. Selecting a specific crop from the generated list pulls up detailed information and images. Readers will also find information about when to start sowing vegetables and when to (if necessary) transplant vegetables from indoor to outdoor gardens. In addition to this chart, visitors can check out quick planting strategies for both the fall and the spring.
