Hey all, new here and for the purposes of this post (and your experience), let's consider me a brand newbie. I'm learning a lot about homesteading, and would love to move my property towards having what I need to feed a lot of my family (produce-wise).

It's May 1st here in Sacramento, CA - is there anything I can plant indoors as seeds, direct sow, or ...? I'm having trouble finding concrete information in the research I've done online, so I thought I'd ask some real folks getting it done. Thanks!

You are pretty late getting started. I don't know how hot you get in the summer, but late winter early spring plantings are recommended for your area and again in late summer early fall. In May you may be able to plant heat loving vegetables like melons, okra, sweet potatoes, some varieties of pepper, southern peas....
Hopefully there are growers in the Central value that can chime in with what works for them. http://sanctuarysoil.com/veget... http://www.farmerfred.com/sacp... https://garden.org/apps/calend... https://www.gardenguides.com/1... http://vric.ucdavis.edu/main/v...

Thanks, farmerdill! I know, I'm very late - new baby left me some time at home from teaching to get all the garden plots ready to go, albeit a bit late! Thanks, too, for the websites you linked.
