Time to look for seeds.

I don't know about you but I have been inundated with seed and plant catalogs. Which obviously signifies that it is time to start looking into our gardens again.

I've got some bulbs that I need to get into the ground still. (blush) I need to schedule that.

So look at your Zone and figure out when your last frost date is HERE.

My last frost date is April 15th. So I have several times that I need to start planting.
I've just looked through my seeds from last year. I had so many leftover that I stored them in the freezer.

First section, tomatoes and peppers, are started indoors 6 weeks before last frost. So I will be doing this the first week in March.

Second section, cole crops (broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce). Some are before last frost and some are the day after last frost. Check labels to make sure.

Third section, summer crops (summer squashes, melons, pumpkins), 2 weeks after last frost. So for me, in the beginning of May.

So if you have seeds that need started 6+ weeks before last frost, now is the time to find them and order them.

So have you planned your garden yet?
