Is there anything more satisfying than springtime planting? Yes, flowers are beautiful, and grass can make your yard, but we are talking about planting your vegetable garden.

The question then becomes, what should you be planting this spring? Below is what Southern Living recommends for garden planting in the South:

What to Plant in March: Cabbage, Carrots, Collards, Kale, Lettuce, Onions, Potatoes (white), Radishes, Swiss Chard, Turnips

What to Plant in April: Pole Beans, Broccoli, Cantaloupe, Corn, Spinach, Squash (summer and winter)

“Also, if there is something specific you want to grow and don’t see it on the list, look into your state’s extension agency’s website. There, you can find resources to help you know when to plant your vegetables.”

“For other tips and helpful knowledge, read Southern Living’s guide on starting a vegetable garden. If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing vegetable garden, or you don’t want to dedicate space in your yard to a garden plot, consider starting an edible garden of plants that are beautiful and functional. If you have questions, send them to the Grumpy Gardener!”

“You’ll have plenty of vegetables to eat, but you probably won’t be able to eat them all yourself. Give them as gifts or learn how to can and preserve them. Host a canning party!”
