Here on the Gulf Coast I'm now enjoying beets, turnips, spinach. lettuce, kale, mustard greens, collard greens, and chard. Hopefully my Brussels sprouts will reach harvest size soon, they are slow. Around March 1st I'll direct seed things like corn and beans plus transplant things like tomatoes and eggplant. That's why I said I can't help you on timing.

When I was in northwest Arkansas I'd start seeds indoors in February to transplant around the first of May. First of may is when I'd direct sow things like beans and corn. But I'd direct seed cool weather crops like beets, lettuce, carrots, peas, chard, kale, and potatoes in late February. plus transplant cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. I'd have to cover those occasionally with sheets to protect against frost or freeing but it usually worked out. My frost and freeze norms there were probably different to yours.
Here goes the southerner again...... :lol: :hide :frow Get used to their being months ahead of us. Enjoy your time here.

Hi there :frow and Welcome!

I was just going on a bit yesterday about how I don't garden where the Brandywine tomato comes from. But, you nearly do!

That is, if that heirloom is from the banks of the Brandywine, in southeastern Pennsylvania. If it was first offered by Burpee Seed Co or Stokes Seed Co both in southeast Pennsylvania - stands to reason ;).

I was thinking the same thing! I wonder if it’s true 🤨

Welcome from Texas! Glad to have you here gardening with us. I don't have to fight little animals so much as the darn BUGS! I swear, they are the size of volkswagon bugs with shark teeth!

You need a fan this size, though I think you can find a better price:
The fan creates a breeze that forces your inside starts to develop tougher stems. Leggy stems that haven't felt a breeze can break off or fall over when you transplant. NOT my idea, just one I have heard from an expert. You can put it on a timer, and start with maybe 30 minutes on your starts, and then give them several hours.
We ALL have had the seedlings that we have babied go outside to die within a week. This is one of the reasons why.
Do you know where Phoenixville Pike is?
