Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment I am going to talk about the best time to start a vegetable garden. Now vegetable gardens are easy to grow but you have got to remember that there is warm climate vegetables and cold climate vegetables so cold climate vegetables like peas and carrots should be started right after the last frost so they're early so two weeks after the last frost actually start the seeds and that way they will grow right away and you can have the vegetables by early Summer. Now if you are growing watermelon or cantaloupes or other warm climate vegetables, they're not going to do anything until it is 70 and above every day for a week so if you start them early they're not going to do anything they're just going to sit there so it is better to wait and start them at least into May or June whenever it is 70 and above continually for a week and then you can plant the seeds right into the ground and they'll grow immediately or you can always start them inside and then turn around and put them outside so the best time to start a vegetable garden if they are a cold climate vegetable, start them right after the last frost, if they are a warm climate vegetable, don't start them until it is 70 and above for a week and then that way you can enjoy all of your vegetables all Summer long.
