Strawberry Plants

Strawberries, Tomatoes, Lettuce

Anonymous added on March 26, 2011 | Answered

I'm starting a new garden from scratch. I've composted, put fertilizer (10-10-10) in topsoil, as well as Miracle Grow garden mix. I think we're ready now. When can I plant my strawberries? They are getting strawberries already. I also want to know when to plant the tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, corn, etc. ? I am affraid of the possible frost. I don't want to mess up, as I put so much money in already.

    The strawberries are ok to plant out now. Lettuce should be ok in a week or two, as long as you are not expecting cold. I would wait until the end of April or even a week into May for cucumbers and corn and 2 or 3 weeks into May for Tomatoes and Peppers. Tomatoes and peppers do better if planted outside when the soil has warmed some. They grow faster that way.
