Planting Cold Hardy Crops

Finally, spring is here!

Although it’s a little early to be thinking of planting flowers outside, it’s not too early to get started on your veggie garden. On nice and warm spring days, it’s important to get outside and get your garden raked, tilled or turned over. There are a number of vegetables that are able to be planted at this time of year. The earliest are the garden peas, which can be planted as soon as your soil is workable. You can follow peas up with some early hardy veggies, such as collards, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts. If you choose to follow up with summer veggies, you can then plan for a third crop of fall veggies. This will give you a long season of different types of vegetables.
