Right around May, growing food in Oklahoma takes on a whole new dynamic. If you thought the bugs were bad in April just wait until you see what starts attacking your food in May. Thankfully, nature has engineered a variety of ways to counteract these bugs and we’re able to manage them without the use of pesticide in our garden. Check out our free mobile app that makes it easy to identify and manage the most common garden pests organically. You can learn more by visiting our website seedtospoon.net or searching From Seed to Spoon in the App Store.
Apart from the influx of insects, May is one of the best months for growing in Oklahoma. Most plants (greens, tomatoes, root crops) should have already been in the ground by now, but there are many heat-loving crops that welcome the warm weather and can be started in May.
