Planting Time for Garden Vegetables

There are two different types of garden vegetables: cool season vegetables and warm season vegetables.

Cool season vegetables require cool soil and air temperatures to grow, and most will survive a light frost. Cool season vegetables include: beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, radishes, and spinach.

The warm season vegetables require warm soil and air temperatures to grow, and most will not survive a light frost. Warm season vegetables include: beans, cantaloupe, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, melons, pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, watermelon, and zucchini.

Understandably, the planting times for garden vegetables provided on most planting charts and seed packets should be used as guidelines. Always factor in the expected warming of the soil and other conditions specific to your region.

Root Vegetables
Plant root vegetables such as radishes, onions, potatoes and carrots in April. Radishes will be ready to harvest as soon as 30 days, potatoes can take up to 150.

Leafy Vegetables
Lettuce and cabbage may be planted in April, but cauliflower and broccoli should wait until May.

Pumpkins, Squash and Melons
These should be planted in May, and will take four to five months to grow enough for harvest.

Corn should be planted in May, and new plants can join the garden every two weeks. Harvest time is two to three months.

Plant peas in April and they will be ready for harvest in 60 days. You can add new pea plants every two weeks after the original planting.
