How to begin your vegetable garden.
The first thing you need is a place to plant, so make sure that you have set aside a spot in your yard to get working! The next thing you need to do is to figure out what sorts of veggies and legumes you can plant in May. Well, we’ve done a little bit of research for you, and you have a couple great options, but we will talk about that in the next section. Now, once you know where and what you’re planting then you need to make sure you have the proper gardening supplies. You’ll need a little trowel, watering supplies, tomato cages if you’re into that, and little labels to mark which plants are where. Staying organized is part of what is going to help keep planting a garden fun.
So, which plants can you plant?
Well, Maryland is in zone 7 of hardiness. This is a scale that guides farmers and gardeners to plant after the frost ends and harvest before it begins, depending on the plant. Now, you can go ahead and get planting with some lettuce, onions, and potatoes. It might be a little late for spinach and kale, but you still have some time.
