TRASH TO TOMATO CHALLENGE

When to plant what & how in Florida. (scroll down about 2/3rds)

From the moon calender of the Farmer's Almanac


June 2009

13-14 Poor days for planting. Kill plant pests, spray, fertilize, do general farm work.

15-16 Favorable time for planting late root crops. Also good for vine crops. Set strawberry plants.

17-18 Cut hay or do plowing on these barren days.

19-20 Good days for planting root crops.

21-22 Seeds planted now tend to rot in ground.

23-25 Plant tomatoes, beans, peppers, corn, cotton, and other aboveground crops on these most fruitful days. Plant seedbeds and flower gardens.

26-30 Poor period for planting. Kill plant pests, clear fence rows, clear land.

TRASH TO TOMATO CHALLENGE

When to plant what & how in Florida. (scroll down about 2/3rds)

June 2009
1-2 Poor period for planting. Kill plant pests, clear fence rows, clear land.

3-5 Favorable for planting peas, beans, tomatoes, and other fall crops bearing above ground. Sow grains and forage crops. Plant flowers.

6-7 First day extra good for planting fall lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, collards and other leafy vegetables. All above ground crops planted now will do well.

Local Weather~
We may see a few less sea breeze storms as the blob to the east of us steals some of our moisture. Still fairly wet to severe in places.
