Well according to my Old Farmer's Almanac 2010, it was time, so I got my veggies planted..., ok well started inside a hotbox.

I put in yellow squash, Cherokee purple tomatoes, string beans, cucumbers for pickling, and tobasco peppers (for heirlooms), and for fun I put in eight ball zucinni <sp?>, and pepprocini peppers, bell peppers, and yellow pear tomatoes. I have to do square foot gardening due to my bein' in a townhome, and I like to use the squash as single plants in planters on my deck, or to break up the flowers in the flower beds with some green.

I tried that, but the signs were so close to the road that the plants didn't do well.
