Plant Vegetables After Easter

Both of my grandfathers swore blue that to plant out any of the fruiting vegetables before Easter was asking for weird weather and replanting. Even though the date for Easter does move around, it certainly has been true for my garden, if I plant before Easter we get a hail storm, or major wind, or rain. If I wait until Easter, we are good to go.

When you are ready to plant out your tomatoes, eggplants, and pepper plants, put some eggshells in the hole first. The egg shells will give the plants some extra calcium which will help stave off "blossom end rot" which is often an indicator of calcium deficiency.

Here in upstate NY it's Memorial Day weekend. No self respecting gardner would even try to plant before then!
