Use Space Wisely

If you want to get the most out of your garden space, don't try to plant everything in a day. Put in greens, peas, potatoes, carrots, beets, and other cool-weather crops early, following package directions. Plant heat-loving crops later. The best dates for each crop vary according to where you live, so seek advice from a good local nursery, a master gardener program, or your local cooperative extension service.

Shown: Starting with transplants, not seeds, makes it easier to get the wide spacing that some plants, including this broccoli, need.
