What to plant in your garden now

For our Zone 6 garden, here is what Mother Earth News recommended for planting now.

Sow under cover outdoors or indoors:  
Lettuce, Peas, Peppers

"Under cover" can be a cloche, portable mini green house, or garden fabric.  All three help maintain a more even temperature.  If using a cloche or mini green house, just be sure on sunny days you are letting them vent or it can get way too hot and cook your newly planted seedlings.

You can also put your more tender seedlings in a pot and take them into the garage or place up close to the house when temperatures dip below freezing outside.

Sow outdoors or plant out:
Apple trees, Asparagus, Beet, Blackberry, Broccoli, Summer Cabbage, Carrots, Kale, Leaf Lettuce, Onion, Peas, Potatoes, Raspberry, Rhubarb,  Spinach, Strawberry, Turnip

I am also transplanting outside Parsley, Mustard, Chives.

Happy planting!
