Vegetable Gardening in Sumner Washington

I love fresh vegetables. They taste more crisp and sweet. And with spring here I thought it would be the perfect time to address vegetable gardening.

For those of you who do not know our USDA Hardiness Zone is 7b. However, a word of caution, the zone map does not work as well in the West. Here other factors besides climate have to be taken into account, like elevation and precipitation. (For more about zone maps visit the National Gardening Association.)

Therefore, I found a Sumner gardener who has posted their vegetable garden timetable so that you can see what is actually working here. To view the timetable click here.

For a list of local garden centers and nurseries please visit my previous post.
