Celery 17 Dec, Rene (USA - Zone 9b climate)
It's mid December, is it too late to start celery from seed?
Celery 18 Dec, (USA - Zone 9b climate)
December is the perfect time to sow seeds for celery! Best to do it in an undercover seed tray, then in February you can transplant the seedlings.

Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 28 Nov, Theresa Tyree (USA - Zone 8a climate)
I am an eight a and now they are calling at 8B. I’ve grown sweet potatoes, very successfully in the ground the past two years, Your greenhouse if it is heat controlled should grow them very well but maybe not in December January February because they like the heat check out traditions on YouTube they did it. But I think they fertilized too much. Lots of leaves no tubers. Good luck.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 30 Nov, (USA - Zone 3a climate)
Too much leaf is too much nitrogen.
Pumpkin 27 Nov, FOX MAN (USA - Zone 8b climate)
what is the biggest type of pumpkin in a zone 8b area?
Lettuce 24 Nov, KCS (USA - Zone 9b climate)
How much sun/shade does lettuce require? Would love to plant in a mostly shaded area of the outside.
Lettuce 05 Dec, Faith Celeste Archer (Canada - Zone 5a Temperate Warm Summer climate)
MOSTLY Shade greens (which is a couple of hours of sun per day): Asian greens (bok choi, pak choi, komatsuna, tatsoi), misuna, kale. mustard greens, arugula AND yes, lettuce... but when you say mostly shade.... and I start to think of what the conditions are like after watering.... wet shade.... and for my zone this means slugs and slugs love lettuce; and for that reason I would probably go with a green other than lettuce -- looking in particular for a firmer, stronger tasting (hotter) green. SOME SEEDS need light to germinate... so you need to start these plants elsewhere and transplant, or perhaps chose a green whose seeds do not need light to germinate.
Lettuce 30 Nov, (USA - Zone 3a climate)
Most crops need plenty of sun otherwise they grow small and weak. There are different varieties to plant in summer or winter.
Turnip 17 Nov, Larry (USA - Zone 9a climate)
When I plant turnips or radishes they never grow a root. I only get greens. I planted in Compost and fertilized at planting with 13-13-13. What can I do to get the root to grow?
Turnip 25 Nov, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
You are using too high a fertiliser. N is for leaf growth P for roots and K is for flower and seed. So back off the N. Just mix a bit compost to soil and mix in well - plant the seeds and see how they grow. If poorly give a light fertilising.
Rhubarb 15 Nov, Arlene Johnson (USA - Zone 8a climate)
I live in Dallas, TX and I would like to plant some rhubarb, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, and beets. When do i plant these and can I plant them in a shaded part of the yard?
Rhubarb 25 Nov, (Australia - temperate climate)
You will have to look up on this website, each different vegetable to see when to plant. Veg general need sun and lots of it.
Strawberry Plants 10 Nov, Denise (USA - Zone 5b climate)
New to gardening. I have several strawberry plants in raised planters that I planted in early summer. Wondering if I should bring them in to our attached garage to protect them from freezing this winter? Thanks!
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 10 Nov, Rosalind gayles (USA - Zone 8b climate)

Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 25 Nov, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
April May if you live Zone 8a. Go to luffa page set climate to 8b and it will tell you when to plant.
Garlic 08 Nov, (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I live in central California, zone 9b. I plants softneck garlic last year and it did very well. I refrigerated it for 3-4 weeks and then planted in November. Doing the same this year.
Jerusalem Artichokes (also Sunchoke) 01 Nov, Cindy (USA - Zone 10a climate)
I just harvested the jerusalem artichoke that we planted last spring. The flowers were done but the plant was still alive. I have lots of small tubers and thick root with sprouts. Is all this OK to cook and eat?
Lettuce 01 Nov, Madison (USA - Zone 9b climate)
How much water does Lettuce need when hardening off???
Lettuce 05 Nov, (USA - Zone 3a climate)
Keep soil moist but not soggy wet. A light watering each day. Even twice a day.
