Hillermann's April Top Tips
 Cool Season Garden Vegetables
* Mount a rain gauge on a post near the garden to keep track of precipitation so you can tell when to water. Most gardens need about 1" of rain per week between April and September.
* Plants started indoors should be hardened-off outdoors in cold frames or a protected area before being transplanted into the garden.
* Finish sowing seeds of all cool-season vegetables not yet planted outdoors and transplant broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower plants into the garden. You can still plant seed potatoes, onion sets and onion plants at this time.
* Plastic films can be used to pre-heat the soil where warm season vegetables are to be grown.
