Get the Foothill Vegetable Planting Guide

The Foothill Vegetable Planting Guide is a two sided, laminated (if ordered for mailing) chart that displays the time-frame for planting the different varieties of vegetables that grow in our area. Planting and harvest dates used are guidelines only as the many microclimates in our areas vary from site to site as do annual weather patterns.

This guide was adapted for El Dorado County by a UCCE Master Gardener team and is based on an earlier planting guide developed for the Sacramento area by Dr. Robert F. Norris of the University of California at Davis.

Please fill out the Foothill Vegetable Planting Guide Order Form if you would like a guide.
