Mosquitos Mean Time to Plant Carrots

If you carefully observe what is going on in nature around your mini-farm and keep notes, eventually you will learn certain natural events coincide with optimal planting times for certain crops.

Your observations will only be applicable to your area. Where I live, for example, I have noticed that I should plant cabbage and broccoli a week after my apple tree starts to bloom and that the appearance of the first mosquito signals the best time to plant carrots and parsnips.

One thing I advocate is keeping a journal. Record what you notice in your journal, and this will ultimately help you fine-tune your planting for optimal performance in your area.
