When to plant in missouri, trelises?

Posted by joytosew 5MO (My Page) on

This is my second year at square foot gardening and last year it rained so much I had no choice but wait to plant.

I live in Missouri around the Hannibal area and would like to know when I should be putting my plants in my beds?
I assume that when you are putting your plants out early that you are using covers to protect them at night and during colder days?
Finally, if you are putting covers over...what are you using as trelises to fit under your plastic covers??

Thank you for any help =)

RE: When to plant in missouri, trelises?

Last fall, I removed my 7 foot trellises and installed a 3 foot one that my hoop covers fit over. They were made out of 2x2s with twine strung every 6 inches. I used them for peas.

Somewhere on my blog are pics. Good luck.
