     Absolute dates for planting can not be given, because of variations in seasons from year to year and varying climatic conditions in different sections. For general guidance see "When to Plant," on page 10.


[ed. note] see Mulch, Intensive and Lazy Gardening Books for alternative methods of preparing the soil and planting.

"Carrots Love Tomatoes" is a good reference for companion planting - which plants like to be planted closer to each other and may help provide natural pest prevention and which plants do not like each other.
