Any recommendations of what to plant when?

dan_the_mailmanJanuary 15, 2011

I've been an avid gardener for decades, but have never tried square foot gardening. I live in Northern Michigan (zone 5) and have some 4'x4' raised beds, so it sounds like I've got a good start. From what I've been reading on the web, SFG sounds like a great way to garden, if you've got a plan of attack...lol! So, does anyone have any recommendations of where I can find list(s) of what veggies/flowers to plant, and when? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have a phenomenal day!

I found the Michigan State University Extension website that has gardening information for your area and another site with a planting chart that you may find useful. I googled "Michigan vegetable planting guide" and there are several websites with information that you may be able to use.

I usually plant a week or two earlier than my local extension service recommends since raised beds warm faster. Happy gardening.
