The Q&A Archives: When to plant a garden

Question: I have a medium sized garden (14' x16') in zone 6b - northampton county PA - when can I plant vegetables? I know tomatoes is after the last frost - around 5/14. But what about cold weather crops? Broccoli, cauliflower, spinach etc? I am eager to get started - when can I start planting?

Answer: Good news! You can set out cool season crops about two to three weeks before your last frost date. That means in 2-3 weeks you can start planting. Best wishes with your garden!
