Gardeners 'To Do List': May

April showers bring may flowers...

Well, we didn't have a month of rain. However non-soggy soil is a great time to add compost to the soil, transplant, and sow seeds into the garden.

Transplant into the soil (from your starting seeds or bought from a garden store):
  • Tomatoes
  • Eggplants
  • Peppers
Sow seeds into the soil:
  • lettuce
  • Spinach
Start seeds in doors:
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Melons

What's that... you still have extra time and want to do more.

Well how about installing rain barrels?
How about adding more mulch to your garden beds to help retain moister and prevent weeds?
Or starting a compost pile?
