Is Earth Day considered an excellent day to plant crops?
By Susan Wolfe from Clinton, TN
It might be where you live. In Vermont our last frost is usually late April/early May so we plant on Memorial Day (late May).
We have to plant when the soil is warm enough to plant or the seed will rot, not come up in south AL. Maybe next week will be warm enough,(4-20 +), I will plant my spring & summer garden then. You can call your County Agent in phone book for more info, good luck.
The Old Farmer's Almanac has moon planting guides, if that was what you had in mind.
Anyone have suggestions for celebrating earth day? I found some ideas here:

- getting everyne together to discuss the benefits of teh earth
- getting everyone together to watch a good movie about the environment. One off the top of my mind (though super old) is 'an inconvenient truth' about global warming
- going out and planting seeds or planting trees
- volunteering at a community garden
I would get a bunch of people together and clean up a park or playground.
