Winter has had us all cooped up, and it’s time to get back into the garden (or container garden) and start planting all sorts of yummy veggies!

Hardy vegetables can withstand hard frosts, which can be 25 – 28 degrees fahrenheit. These veggies taste best when they reach maturity in cooler temps. You will want to plant hardy vegetables in early spring for a spring harvest.

  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • English peas
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Leeks
  • Mustard greens
  • Parsley
  • Radish
  • Spinach
  • Turnip

Semi-Hardy vegetables only tolerate light frosts which can range from 29 to 32 degrees fahrenheit, but are still great for spring gardens.

  • Beets
  • Carrot
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Chinese cabbage
  • Endive
  • Irish potatoes
  • Lettuce and gourmet salad greens
  • Radicchio
  • Rutabaga
