It's always best to plant seeds for warm-season crops in the spring, after the soil and temperatures have warmed. In your California garden, mid-April is a good time. If you plant too early, the seeds will fail to germinate and the plants will fail to thrive. Wait until spring has really arrived before sowing your vegetable seeds.
