Lauderdale: Vegetable gardens

1 Comment | Leave a Comment


March is almost here, and vegetable gardening time is upon us. With all the cold weather we have had this winter, early vegetable gardening may not be quite so early this year. However, there are more vegetables than most people think of that can be planted this time of year.

Plant cabbage (Round Dutch, Early Jersey, Red Acre), onions (Ebenezer, Excell, Early Grano), head lettuce (Great Lakes, Ithaca), radishes (Early Scarlet Globe, Cherry Belle), rutabagas (American Purple Top, Laurentian), edible pod spring peas (Sugar Snap, Mammoth Melting Sugar, Snowbird), spring garden peas (Wando, Green Arrow, Freesonian), turnips (Purple Top White Globe, Just Right), carrots (Danvers Half Long, Spartan Bonus), Irish potatoes (Kennebec, Atlantic, Pungo, Superior), leaf lettuce (Grand Rapids, Salad Bowl, Buttercrunch), mustard (Southern Giant Curled, Tendergreen) and spinach (Hybrid 7, Dark Green Bloomsdale) anytime through March. The varieties listed after each vegetable are suggestions from our NC Cooperative Extension publication on Home Vegetable Gardening. To see more information from this publication you can search Home Vegetable Gardening NCSU. Even if you have never grown a single vegetable plant, this publication will help you get started.


Don’t forget to soil test: Soil testing is one of the most important steps in any type of gardening. The only way to know what nutrients are in soil for plant use is to soil test. Pick up soil testing boxes at the NC Cooperative Extension office in Pitt County in the Agricultural Center at 403 Government Circle. These testing supplies will allow you to submit samples to the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Agronomic Division in Raleigh. There is a $4 charge per sample through March and samples must be entered online before mailing them to the lab in Raleigh. Soil sampling turnaround time is currently one to two weeks. Starting in April soil testing will be free.
