32°      50 or more years

 

40°      20 - 25 years

 

50°      10 - 12 years

 

60°      6  - 10 years

Starting Your Garden

Introduction
This is a general Guide to planting and raising vegetables from seeds.

 

Begin as early as possible
As early as possible in the growing season, prepare a list of the vegetables, you wish to grow.  Make a plan where in the garden you want to put your plants, take note of wind, shade, and sunlight conditions. Save the paper and add notes as your garden progresses.  Remove seeds from your seed storage according to your planed planting schedule.  Quickly maturing plants such as radishes, leaf lettuce, and other greens, can be planted early and late in the seasons for multiple harvests, this is sometimes called ( the fall garden). Fall gardens of hardy plants may be grown harvested up to the first fall frost, even later with protective structures.

 

Planting Time
plant your seeds at a time based on the category of plants.
Frost tender plants must be planted after the last spring frost or started indoors or in an enclosed protective structure.

Hardy plants can be started outdoors much earlier that other varieties of garden plants. These plants can also be grown late in the season, right up to the killing frost.

 

Be aware of your areas climate
Uses your local resources when available, local agricultural or university extension offices, garden supply outlets, nursery and or garden clubs as well as on-line sources. With this info you can now successful plan your garden from spring to fall.
