Early spring is a time of transition in the Southern California vegetable garden when cool-season crops are still growing and being harvested but warm-season crops are being sown and planted as well.
This video shows what my vegetable garden looks like here in early April: what is growing and being harvested; what has recently been sown and planted; and also, what will soon be planted from my stock of seedlings.
I think you’ll find some enjoyment in seeing what’s happening right now among my vegetables. I know that I always get something out of visiting other gardens.
Here again are the sowing and planting dates for each crop shown in the video:
