May 30th is the day to plant warm weather plants!

Look for our hot weather plants for sale May 23rd (8am-11am), May 30th, June 6th
Basil, Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers, Squash, Eggplant, Pumpkins
At WeeBee Farms we don't plant tomatoes or basil out until May 30th, and peppers until a week later. Why? We have gotten a killing frost as late as June 8th (1998). Also, those plants love hot weather and warm ground temperatures. Our nights are still pretty cool and this stresses out the plants, especially peppers which are really fussy. We always plant pepper plants in the garden in the first week of June, and have almost always had a great harvest. Peppers grow really well here! (They may need covered up a few nights in September when we get the first frosts).
