Almanac planting dates for December are:

Dec. 1: A poor time to plant.

Dec. 2-3: Fine for planting beans, peppers, cucumbers, melons and other aboveground crops where climate is suitable.

Dec. 4-6: Seeds planted now tend to rot in the ground.

Dec. 7-8: Most favorable days for planting beets, onions, turnips and other root crops where climate allows. Plant seedbeds and flower gardens.

Dec. 9-13: A most barren period. Kill plant pests and do general farm work.
