Hi there, thank you in advance. I am wanting to start a nice garden this year and I'm wondering when I should plant my seeds in our greenhouse in Reno Nevada. Do you have a list of all types of vegetables and went to seed / transplant them? Thanks

Welcome! to ATP

Now just let me get this off my chest. YEEEHHHH!!!!! Someone from RENO! WooHOO! Smiling

What part of Reno do you live in? I am in Zone 6b at about 5000 feet. If you are downtown (4500 feet), it will be warmer at your house. If you are up in Red Rock, colder. Southwest neighborhoods, sitting on a steam vent, warmer. I am starting my seeds around April 1 (if I can stand it that long). If the weather continues the way it is this week, those veggie seeds could be in the starting mix next week - or if sanity prevails, middle of March. Starting seeds in a greenhouse is always faster than on the kitchen counter or top of the refrigerator. Mine are usually hatched and ready to plant out in just 4 weeks. So mine will be ready to go into the ground between mid-May and first of June.

I start peppers first because they germinate and grow so much slower. Tomatoes and eggplant are later because they grow fast. Squash, cucumbers, melons and beans I plant directly into the garden after the soil temperature is warm. Plan on protecting them no matter when you plant because you know we will get one more snowstorm two days after you put those tender little plants out in the garden.
