April is the Perfect Time for…Just About Everything in the Garden

April Calendar for Willamette Valley, USDA Zone 8

During the sun breaks🌤, work on bed prep and clean-up. When it’s showering🌧, do indoor sowing of warm season crops. (Cucumber, squash, tomatoes, peppers, etc.)

It’s still chilly, so don’t worry if you haven’t gotten your cool season outdoor sowing done yet. There’s still time to get those peas, carrots, potatoes, beets, chard, and lettuces going. Wait for soil temps above 40 degrees.

Skim the April Calendar for info on how to deal with slugs, what to start planting, how to harden off starts, what needs fertilizing, lawn care, and much more!
