If you've been itching to get that annual produce in the ground and have been waiting for the thumbs up from somewhere, University of Illinois Extension horticulturalist, Candice Miller says, go ahead.
She says at this point in the spring, it is all about personal preference whether you want to plant that produce, though she warns be careful as the nights are still getting somewhat cool.
Miller indicates if you planted a cool season vegetable it is probably doing really well right now. She says the cool wet weather of the past few days has helped a lot.
If you're looking for an alternate way of gardening this summer, the University of Illinois Extension office has another seminar tonight in DeWitt County. Miller says they are focusing on different ways of gardening if you don't have a traditional garden.
That seminar is Tuesday night from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Clinton U of I Extension office. Get more information online or by calling 217-935-5764.
