The Q&A Archives: Planting Schedule for Vegetable Garden

Question: I am a first time vegetable gardener. When do I plant which vegetables? How do I know when the frost free date is?

Answer: The average last frost date for your area is about April 15th. You can plant cool-season veggies like peas, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli and green beans about the middle of March. Warm-season veggies like peppers, tomatoes and corn won't like cold soils, so start your seeds indoors and transplant the seedlings into the garden about mid-May.<br><br>There are two excellent webpages that contain specific information on various vegetables for your area:<br><br>(follow the Master Gardener link)<br>or:<br>(this site was developed by Washington State University<br><br>Good luck with your garden!
