The National Weather Service is not predicting an earlier spring for PA (it will be earlier south of us) but there are things that can go into the ground now like onions and spinach. Planting dates are on the chart and there are a lot of things that can go into an early garden.
A little know fact: according to the gardening industry, around 6 – 8 % of fresh vegetabl es in the US come from home gardens. And the home gardening movement in this country is steadily growing. So too is interest in the local food economy and there will be more coming on this for Centre County this year.
Special thanks to Bill Sharp for contributing this article and planting chart!
