It's Time to Start Your Garden


     Summer may still seem a long way off, but if you want the pleasure of harvesting fresh vegetables from your garden in summer, the time to think about planting is now. At least for some crops. These are plants that will tolerate cold temperatures, and in some cases, will even grow better if planted while the weather is still cool. These plants include:

all cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, turnip, etc.)
asparagus
beets
carrots
kale
lettuce
onions (either seeds or sets)
peas
radish
spinach
Swiss chard

If you can't get to this immediately, don't worry. Any time between now and the middle of May will be fine. After that, you can still plant these vegetables, but they may not do as well as they will if they are planted earlier.
