About Cold Crops

By March 18, 2022 No Comments

New gardeners may think that seeds can’t be planted outside until June 10th. That’s an important date for gardeners here on the Island; it’s when the danger of frost has mostly passed, and the soil has warmed up to make it the ideal time for planting some seeds.

Have you heard of “cold crops?” Seeds for these veggies germinate in a cooler soil temperature. Many of them can be sown as soon as the soil can be worked.

Cold crops include:

Arugula
Broccoli
Brussels sprouts
Carrots
Cabbage
Collards
Kale
Kohlrabi
Lettuces and other greens
Mustard
Onions
Peas
Radishes
Spinach
Swiss Chard

The best information for when & how to plant veggies can be found on your seed package.
