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.

There are two excellent webpages that contain specific information on various vegetables for your area:

Good luck with your garden!
