April 3 column: Cool-season crops

Here is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: As soil dries, it’s time for cool-season crops.

As the headline implies, this column is about growing crops like peas, lettuce, carrots, parsnips, beets, radishes and so on. Today’s column is actually part one of two columns on this topic. In this one, I talk about growing Swiss chard, collards and onions.

April 15th is a good target date for getting most cool-season crops into the ground.
