Question: Vegetable Garden Planting Times

I am excited about having my "first time ever" backyard garden. Please advise planting times (between zones 7 and 8) for watermelons, banana cantaloupes, okra, and blackeyed peas. Thank you.

If you live in the US, the best place for veg (and other plantings including landscape and flowers) advice is from your local extension office. The webpages for your county extension office are free to download/print and are specific to YOUR area-the pages will highlight information geared to the microclimates, what grows best there, and what plant pests and diseases are causing a concern-all of it local to your area!

You can find the phone number in the Government pages of your phone book or online by using the following search term:

cooperative extension office (insert name of your county and state)

For example, using the above as:

extension office houston county al

Question: Planting a Vegetable Garden

When would be a good time to seed veggies seeds and also when to plant?

You plant the seeds inside in small peat pots about 2-3 weeks before you get ready to plant and tend to them indoors. Sunny spot, windowseal or such. You plant outside after the last frost, which typically (at least in the South) is right after Easter (although the weather is changing over the years and requires a bit of weather forecasting these days.) Review when the last frosts are your area, though, before planting outdoors.

Hi Dave! I'm an American ex-pat living in east-central Scotland, and sometimes feel I'm having to learn gardening all over again since moving to the UK! I've found these three sites to be the most helpful:

http://www.gardeningzone.org/content/content.php/hardiness-zones-uk/
and
http://www.gardenaction.co.uk/calendars-index.asp

and finally, the best of all (even though we don't have an allotment, the info works every bit as well in our home plot!):

http://www.allotment.org.uk/

Goo luck, hope this helps!

Question: Vegetable Garden Planting Calendar

I cannot find a planting calendar for a vegetable garden. I live in the South Coast, Batemans Bay, NSW Australia. What do you plant in spring, summer, and autumn? Can you suggest a month by month or a seasonal calendar? Many thanks.

Question: Growing Guide for Vegetables by Hardiness Zone

At a time that I did not need it I ran across a pdf document that showed what kinds of plants could be planted and grown in a given zone (mine is DFW Texas). Would anyone have something like this that I could download? It was like a chart that showed a list of the vegetables then the months were listed across the top and it diagrammed what veggies could be grown during each month. I hope I am making sense.
Thanks.
