i have just found the greatest help to starting my seedlings. check out this site to find your frost dates for the year. once you find your first fall frost date, count back 12-14 weeks. this is when you should start your fall seeds (in doors). turns out i'll be doing some planting this week! good thing i checked when i did!
if you would like a comprehensive list of what to plant, and when, check out the mother earth website. it is full of good, easy to follow information! you can type in 'what to plant now' in the search box, or follow this link.
if you're looking for a great place to buy your seeds, check out my favorite, baker creek.
what are you putting in this season? i'm dreaming of broccoli, brussels sprouts (the family favorite), a whole box of spinach (for our green smoothies), red russian kale, carrots, lettuce, garlic, shallots, turnips...
