Mustard greens (also gai choy) 03 Jun, FELECIA L CADE (USA - Zone 5a climate)
Gai Choy able to be sowed in July for Fall harvest right? Do these leaves grow pretty big? I ordered Asian mustard from someone in the spring and believe I received the small Gai Choy.
Potato 30 May, Laura (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Could I plant certain potatoes in zone 7B in June? I live in Southampton County, Va.
Potato 07 Jun, Ross (USA - Zone 7b climate)
I live in Zone 7b in Arkansas. It's been an unusually cool and wet spring / summer. I planted four varieties in a prepared bed. (composted manure was tilled in.) The varieties were Pontiac red, Kenebek, Russet and Yukon Gold in roughly equal amounts, purchased prepackaged at a farm store. The seed potatoes were sown in rows 12 -18 inch spacing on Feb 28 by burying shallow, then covering with several inches of composted manure followed by several inches of straw, two bales on roughly 120 sq feet. I did not document when they sprouted but it seemed weak initially but success rate of sprouts was eventually good. The composted manure is weedy and so was the straw, eventually weed pressure was high so I covered with another layer of composted manure. ( I don't remember the date and the plants were 20 inches or so tall, some in blossom. ) Although at the time of harvest the bed was heavy with weeds again that worked long enough to bring in a harvest on June 4th. While harvesting the soil was still quite moist, only two or three potatoes had rotted and the yield was about 2 to 3 nice sized potatoes per plant with up to three small potatoes per plant too. I followed the harvest with a sweet corn. I contemplated a second potato planting but i think it will be too hot. I'm going to make a deep raised bed from pallets manure and straw out in a shady part of my homestead and try a few to see what happens. Hopefully that helps.

Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 17 May, Chuck Celestine (USA - Zone 8b climate)
it's May 16th and I'm wanting to sow some okra seeds. Has anyone had success in zone 8b? Would love some tips, for i don't have much room so I do mostly containers, but I can make space if needed. Thanks so much Chuck Celestine
Sunflower 16 May, Thelma Jenkins (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Our area has a lot of wind, up to 95 in summer. Get some snow in winter. Would like to plant them along our fenceline around our 1acre. Zone7b.AZ. Any advice will be appreciated.
Rhubarb 16 May, Donna Johnson (USA - Zone 10b climate)

Cucumber 15 May, ASHLEY (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hi, I was curious to know if I could sow/start cucumbers from seed indoors?
Pumpkin 12 May, Caroline (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
Hi my name is Caroline and I’m not from New Zealand, but I love pumpkins! I REALLY REALLY have the urge to carve a pumpkin but unfortunately they are all out of season in America. This might sound stupid but are pumpkins on the same schedule in New Zealand bc of the difference in climate? Like would I be able to get one shipped ?
Rhubarb 05 May, Rossana Parker (Canada - Zone 6b Temperate Warm Summer climate)
Can grow rhubarb in a big pot? And which area in the garden can I place it? Thank you.

It grows fine in a big pot and is happy in semi-shared areas.

Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 01 May, Bob (USA - Zone 9a climate)
Is it best to direct sow or transplant okra in 9a.
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 09 May, Kimberly Borzillo (USA - Zone 7b climate)
direct sow....can do 2 week succession planting... okra loves hot weather and is very forgiving.
Brussels sprouts 01 May, Karen (USA - Zone 6b climate)
I bought a six pack of small brussels sprout plants in my area, zone 6B in April. That’s when they were available. Can they be reasonably be planted now?

Rhubarb 28 Apr, Kristen (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Is it too late to plant rhubarb from plants this year in my zone? The chart above says March. Or should I wait until next year? Thank you!

Check using your zone 6a eg www.gardenate.com/plant/Coriander?zone=16
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 20 Apr, Jim (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Just my observations. I am in zone 8a. I built my first lasagne bed in the fall of 2018. Then planted n spring of 2019. I experimented with a variety of chiles. Poblano, Thai, Cayenne longs, Pasillas, Italian sandwich, Sweet Bells, and Jalapeño. The bed got full sun, I planted closely, and harvested 472 mature chiles. Every variety produced heavily. This would seem to contradict your data, that chiles need growing room, and good air circulation. The “ stems” were more like trunks of a two year old fruit tree. Almost 2” in girth and very sturdy. I submit this data not to gloat, but for further consideration. Thank you!
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 24 Jun, Mairlyn (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Jim what date did you plant your chiles? I'm new to the area and gardening and want to plant poblano peppers. Thank you
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 04 May, Colleen (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hey Jim, How many plants did you plant in the bed? One of each? I'm doing a variety of chili peppers in containers this year and your comment gives me hope that two plants could fit in one 7 gallon grow bag. Thanks! Best, Colleen
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 02 May, Melinda Schwab (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Thanks for sharing!! I have had huge trunks before on ours as well because we planted them in front of our hen house [bedding was tossed out in that garden area all year] and they were HUGE by October and loaded to the point of cracking a few "branches" from the weight... LOL! I think the same thing... They just like a lot of sun and nitrogen and water at least once every week or two.... Didn't seem to matter much about spacing and the closer they were the less breakage it seemed to have. :-)
Peas 18 Apr, Gene (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Best days to plant peas and also best days for potatoes
