Vegetables to Plant In April




 

 

 

 

 

Soil Amendments
In order to start planting you need to amend the soil and provide it with nutrients the plants will need to thrive. The first thing to do is pull any weeds that have come up since the last time you turned over the soil. Dig out any leftover crops that you may have missed the last time you harvested.

Amendments you might need
Azomite Micronized 

Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Organic Bone Meal

Worm Castings Organic Fertilizer, Wiggle Worm Soil Builder,

Organic Vermiculite 

Coco Coir Block or peat Moss

Turn the soil several times and add any or all of the above amendments you want, if you need them. If you have a very good compost like worm castings, that should be sufficient to amend most soil.

What to Plant in April by Zone

    When and what to plant will depend on where you live or your grow zone. Planting zones tell us the temperature of the specific zone. in other words it tell us when the average last frost will occur where you live.

    Grow zones help you plant the right seeds at the right time in order to maximize your growing season and minimize lost of seeds, seedling and plants due to frost. I am in zone 6a and my last frost date is usually after first or second week of May. With that said you can still plant seeds a few weeks before your last frost date if you have a greenhouse or you can start seeds indoors. checkout my post on seed starting indoors.
