Vegetable garden in May - 5 tasks

  1. If you want beans, you have to sow them by mid-May at the latest. If you want easy-care beans, you should choose bush beans, as runner beans are more susceptible. Runner beans or firebeans are also used to cooler temperatures.
  2. If you want to try sweet corn, then May is the ideal month for planting, not before, because the temperatures could otherwise be too cool. Corn with beans is ideal in bed.
  3. In order to let cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, onions and also cabbage thrive, you should sow dill in between. This promotes growth.
  4. Zucchini and cucumbers should not be planted outside before mid-May. Both need warmth and would no longer grow at temperatures below 10 degrees.
  5. It is now harvest time for rhubarb. The entire plant should never be harvested, otherwise the plant will lose strength. A third every two weeks is ideal.
