I had made up a planting schedule for the whole year ahead of time this year with some help from Clemson University's website. They had South Carolina divided up into specific regions, and gave great advice that has probably saved me time, money, and aggravation. For instance, I was going to plant Collards with my early crops, but Clemson suggests waiting for a Fall crop. They would grow fine, it seems, as an early season crop. They would also be bitter and awful without that Fall frost required to make them worth eating. Bless them for sparing me that disappointment!
I'm off to my SC garden tomorrow night and I'll be red-faced, sweaty and sore Saturday morning. I wouldn't have it any other way.
