Vegetable Garden – When to plant

One of the most common questions when it comes to vegetable gardens is – when do I plant my seeds for my vegetable garden?

Vegetable Garden: When do I plant

That question can have many different answers based on certain details.  These details can include – where you live, what season you are planting in, and the growing conditions in your area.

Vegetable Garden: Optimal seed starting dates

Believe it or not – seeds have an optimal time for planting.  It’s seems like every year I just barely miss the optimal planting dates– Spring seems to just sneaks up on me!

The sooner you start, the sooner you will have a garden full of beautiful vegetables, so don’t wait until the very last minute. Starting your plants indoors is a great way to get your garden started early.

Vegetable Garden: Resources

Here is a resource that I’ve created to help you remember when to start each plant, but keep in mind the dates may vary a bit depending on the climate you live in (I live in North Texas, Zone 8a).

Transplanting outdoors should always be done after the last frost (you can look up the first and last freeze dates by zip code here). Warmer areas can obviously start their seedlings earlier, where as folks that live in colder climates have to start a little later in the season.
