Q

Can I grow bitter melon, gourds, thai chili peppers, hmong cucumbers, peas, green peas, sugar snap peas, and lemon grass in Clinton? When should I plant them?

Answer(s)

A

Peas, radishes, lettuce and onions are considered cool season vegetables that you can plant as soon as you can work the soil in the spring.  Melons, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers should be planted when the threat of frost is gone. Attached is a link to a variety recommendation with planting dates.  http://extension.usu.edu/files/publications/publication/HG_313.pdf
