This publication is intended for country-wide distribution. Any Heirloom / Open Pollinated Vegetable Gardener using it also needs local information, especially on the earliest and latest safe planting dates for vegetables and any special garden practices and varieties that are best for his location. Heirloom / Open Pollinated Vegetable Gardeners may get local information and advice from their State Extension Office and County Extension agents.

Please Note: This is a publication from the U.S.D.A. It has a lot of great information, but it does have information on commercial fertilizer that we do not support.
