Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and we’re officially giving ourselves permission to get excited about spring. We’re still riding high on roses for the spring garden, but that’s not the only thing we’re digging into at Autumn Hill Nursery. Prep your palettes for delectable edibles. We’re all about that spring veggie garden planning!

Plan Your Spring Veggie Garden

harvested carrotsWe’ve all been there: you get caught up in the spring gardening craze, and by the time your veggies sprout, they’re all over the place. That’s what garden prep is for! Sketch a design for a spring vegetable garden that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the tongue. For a smaller space, try square foot veggie gardening . For a larger space, plan rows of seasonal vegetables according to growing needs. Before planting, prep the soil by clearing away any weeds, tilling the soil, and mixing in 3-4 inches of compost or fertilizer to create a rich bed for growing spring vegetables.

What to Plant?

Planting the right vegetable at the right time is the key to a healthy, bountiful harvest. For some hardy vegetables, you can begin planting as early as February. Plant carrots, collards, Irish potatoes, English peas, lettuce, onions, radishes, mustard, spinach, and turnips in late February. Tend the garden through March, and set aside tender crops for planting in April. Some of our favorites include:

  • Okra
  • Eggplant
  • Field Peas
  • Peppers
  • Squash
  • Snap, Pole, and Lima Beans
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Melons
