The time is now for East Texas vegetable gardeners to make preparations for planting early varieties and spring garden staples, said Dr. Joe Masabni, small-acreage vegetable specialist, Overton.
Gardeners have some cool-season vegetables planted already and are soon preparing to plant early vegetable varieties, such as onions.
“Weeds still germinate and grow this time of year so be mindful to rid your garden of them,” he said. “It will reduce the number you contend with later in the season.”
Now is also a good time to take soil samples that can help direct gardeners’ soil improvement regimens for fruits or vegetables, he said.
