When to Plant Different Types of Vegetables
Deciding when to plant vegetables can vary depending on a number of factors such as your climate, the type of soil you have, and the specific vegetable you plan on planting.
Here are some general guidelines to help you determine when to plant different vegetables:
Cool Season Vegetables: These include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and spinach. They can be planted in early spring or late summer/early fall.
Warm Season Vegetables: These include tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and cucumbers. They should be planted after the last frost of the season and when the soil is warm enough.
Root Vegetables: This group includes carrots, beets, radishes, and turnips. They can be planted in early spring or late summer/early fall.
Leafy Greens: This group includes lettuce, Swiss chard, and collard greens. They can be planted in early spring or late summer/early fall.
Bulbs: This group includes garlic, onions, and shallots. They can be planted in the fall for a harvest the following year.
Legumes: This group includes beans and peas. They can be planted in the spring after the last frost of the season.
Remember, these are general guidelines and it is always best to check the specific growing requirements for each vegetable you plan to plant. When in doubt, consult a gardening guide or speak with a local expert.
