The best time to plant
Here in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, our safe planting date is May 1. It is really hard to wait until then to plant out the garden. Last year, I was so ready to jump into it, and the weather was so nice at the end of March, that I planted a bunch of peppers and basil the first week of April.
The third week of April, we got our final round of cold and half my plants died. The ones that survived never fully recovered and were always behind the plants that went into the ground in May.
Waiting until the right time to implement a change can be really hard but beginning a change at the wrong time rarely leads to success.
Put another way, just because something needs fixed doesn’t mean that now is the right time to fix it. It is so hard to be patient, but so important.
Do good and be well,
