Georgia Spring Gardens: What to Plant and Harvest

 Basket full of gardening toolsSpring is here, and that means it’s time to give your garden a little attention. Here are a few spring gardening tips to help determine what plants should be harvested and cycled out and what new plants are in their planting season.

Plants to Harvest in the Spring

Leafy greens, like kale and collards, are hardy plants generally planted in the fall. If they’ve survived our Georgia winter, now is the time to harvest them. Likewise, collards and cabbage are also harvestable now. If you have any root vegetables left in your garden, now is a good time to harvest them too. Alliums, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, beans, and onions are all having their harvest season right now. If you have many herbs in your garden, go ahead and harvest your parsley, cilantro, chives, mint, thyme, and dill too.

What Plants to Plant in Spring

Now that you have made a little more room in your garden, you should have room to plant some new plants. Right now is a good time squeeze in a second round of turnips, mustard, and radishes. Beets, carrots, various lettuces, peas, Irish potatoes, and spinach will also do well if planted now.
