For those who have not started the early spring vegetables, the next bit planting date is coming up. Vegetable gardens in Idaho typically are to be planted during the week of May 7th (also keep an eye on those mountains -snow should be gone from the butte). Personally, if you are not using those walls of water, really look to see if the snow is melted off the top of the high mountain (shaffer butte (sp?)).
So if you’ve been ho-humming around; go and prepare your area and purchase your tomatoes, bell peppers, zuchinni, basil, herbs, and plant them in the next couple of weeks. You don’t have to be right on time; preferably get things planted by the end of this month. You can keep those plants indoors in a sunny spot until you plat them.
