Here's your garden sign

Plant peas, beets and lettuce when the first leaves appear on the lilac bush. 

Plant corn, beans and squash when the lilac blooms. 

Plant cabbage when the dogwood is in full bloom or when the apple blossoms bud.

Plant corn when oak leaves are the size mouse's ear or elm leaves are the size of a squirrel's ear. 

Set out tomato transplants when the first ladybugs appear. 

Beans, carrots, cauliflower and beets do well in close quarters. 

Plant radish with your lettuce..flea beetle will stay away. 

Plant carrots and onions close, keeping the carrot fly away. 

Cabbage away from tomatoes and celery. 

Cucumbers are improved when beans are grown between them. 

Turnips like to have some peas nearby. 

Beans and sweet corn do well in alternate rows. 

Plant beans on top of your potatoes to keep the potato bug away. 

Marigolds throughout the garden...all over the place!
