Question: I am ready to choose seeds to start my garden. Can you give me some examples of resistant varieties for spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, green beans and squash? I can't wait to get my hands in the soil again!
Answer:Our online publication "Recommended Vegetable Cultivars for Maryland Home Gardens" will give you plenty of suggestions for those vegetables and more at www.hgic.umd.edu under Publications. Our publications can help you plant outdoors or start vegetable transplants indoors, for example Planting Dates for Vegetable Crops in Maryland. In your eagerness to get gardening, remember not to start transplants too early, which causes them to be too tall too early. Growing Vegetable Transplants will help you time them right.
