Cool Season Vegetables
Cool-season vegetables such as include broccoli, cabbage, carrot, lettuce, onion, peas, potato, radish can be planted starting in Mid-September.
Warm Season Vegetables
Warm-season vegetables such as green beans, cucumber, melons, pepper, pumpkin, squash, sweet corn, and tomatos need to be covered if planted early as they do not tolerate frost. Most people plant warm-season vegetables in mid-Feburary. I usually plant the green beans the same time as the sweet peas and cover during frosts. Tomatoes though do best if planted in Feburary as they are very susceptible to frost
As a rule of thumb, annuals can be planted October through April, Citrus trees in the fall and spring, Bare root roses January and Feburary, Vegetables can be planted from Mid-September-March. Most bulbs can be planted in November such as Iris and Daffodil.
As I record the growth in our vegetable garden I will update individual pages with information regarding when it was planted and when we could start harvesting.
