All my farming type buddies at work told me that the best time to plant veggies is on Good Friday. Last year I started my container garden in like June or July. I got good growth, but no fruit because the cold came and killed everything :( I got it right this year though, LOL! Yes, technically Good Friday is tomorrow, but it was soo pretty outside when I got home, I had to get in the dirt a day early :)
If I am able to grow and eat 1 item, I will call that success!
