I've got an 8'x8' raised bed. I just planted it with seeds (radish, carrot, turnip, spinach, kale) last Thursday. Just looked outside and it's snowing. It's April 15th and it's snowing.

Am I gonna need to replant everything? If so, how long do I wait?

All of these are cold-weather crops so in theory none of them will be harmed by the snow. If in a week you don't have sprouts, sow again. But I'd bet you a dollar that they'll be fine.

P.S. I used to live on an Air Force Base in Belleville. It's a beautiful area. Welcome to Garden.org. Please stick around! Smiling
Keep going!

Jai, Scott AFB?
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Yep!

I realize it's not technically "in" Belleville but I think nobody observes that distinction except tax collectors.

I grow radish, spinach and kale. They love the cold and can stand a little bit. In fact kale likes it so much I have decided to do a fall harvest this year. The frost helps its flavor they say. And the best spinach I ever had was a patch that over-wintered (Cleveland Ohio!) I also would be surprised if they don't come right up. Let us know!
