The Q&A Archives: Planting seeds outside

Question: Hello,

I live in Maryland (zone 7) and I want to plant green beans, cucumber and corn seeds outside. Does the dirt have to be a certain temperature? When can I plant these seeds outside?

Thank you

Answer: Your last average frost date was April 11 so instead of starting seeds indoors now, why not wait 7-10 days and plant them directly outdoors? Good luck with your garden.
