Gardening 101

Not sure when to plant your tomatoes and potatoes? Just ask Fran! Fran Blank, the gardening guru from Don Mould’s Plantation in North Ridgeville, got her hands dirty with David! Click on our video clip to see the rest of her tips!

  1. Don’t work a cold wet soil. Many of us have clayey soils and if they are worked while wet they can become rock hard. The only solution for “after the fact hard soil” is to wait for the soil to freeze and thaw next winter. The winter action will mellow the soil but this summer your soil will be unworkable.
  2. Why do you always hear that you should plant your onions “as soon as the soil can be worked”?  First – go back to my first talking point about waiting for soil to be workable. Next – Onion growth is affected by day length. Whenever you plant your onions (could be in January by seed or April by set or plant or later) until the summer solstice of June 21, the onions spend their time growing leaves. On or close to June 21, our days are 15 hours long then begin to shorten – this triggers bulbing in the onion. The bigger the set of leaves on your onions on June 21 the bigger bulb the plant can ultimately grow. The bulbs grow from June 21 through the end of July when they are harvested.
