April: Cool Season Vegetables

Vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, beets, peas and radishes all enjoy cool soil and can be usually be planted starting in mid to late April – check the long range forecast first in case some very cool weather is coming and planting needs to be delayed.  Lettuce and peas require the soil to be a little warmer than spinach, beets and radishes.  Watch the weather – if a frost is predicted, cover your plants to protect them.
