I had to do some searching to determine just what part of Mississippi you lived in as there is more than one Oxford in Mississippi! I determined that you city is in north Mississippi. Therefore in your area since the average first frost arrives about late October or early November you can plant both of those vegetable now. In fact you should go ahead and plant asap and then try seeding another time about 1 week later to hedge your bet.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
