Garden Dates

These are the recommended planting dates for the Spokane area, from the National Gardening Association. I’ve re-sorted them, based on the dates for direct sowing of seeds. The original was alphabetical by veg, and my text editor sorted them alphabetically by date. I fixed some of them before I ran out of patience
