Now is the time to plant cool season vegetables

September 2, 2010

Cilantro If you live in the South, around zones 7/8/9, then it's time to start planting your cool season vegetable and herb crops. They would include broccoli, cabbage, collard greens, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, chard, cilantro, dill, fennel and more. Transplants of all these veggies should be showing up at your local independent garden center right now. You can also start to direct seed into your garden crops such as carrots, beets, spinach, turnips, parsnips, lettuces, any of the greens, English peas, fava beans and more.

North Haven Garden in Dallas has plenty of stock on these items right now plus an upcoming veggie class on Sept. 8th. Also, I am available for programs and consultations in the Dallas area if you need help getting started!
