In your short, cool-season climate, choose varieties that ripen early. Some suggestions include kale, lettuce, swiss chard, squash, carrots, beets, potatoes, broccoli, cabbage and short season tomatoes such as 'Siberia' and 'Northern Exposure'.

You can begin planting these crops in mid-April, with the exception of tomatoes, which should go into the ground in late May.

For best results choose the sunniest site possible for you veggie garden.
