How early can you plant a garden where you live?

When I planted a garden every year I tried to plant potatoes on St. Patrick's day (March 17). I would also plant peas, lettuce, radishes, and onions at about that time. Spinach likes the early cool weather, as well. Beans and squash, tomatoes, peppers May through June. What and when do you plant?

We normally plant potatoes in November, and yes you can plant these other vegies around the same time, as for Spinach we usually plant them in May, and as for Beans, squash, tomatoes, peppers we have to plant them normally in November,.

I wish that I had enough sun in my garden to support vegetables. Last year I planted horseradish and I hope it does well. I also have sage that did wonderfully last year. I planted some grape tomatoes in planters that really produced. I bought the plants in a 4-pack when they were about 6 inches high. You are lucky to be able to grow your own vegies. I miss having a vegetable garden.

I haven't got a very big garden (thankfully) and I plant my spring bulbs at the end of October. The shoots have just started appearing above the ground. I have a great lot of rhubarb as that is quite easy to grow and my son loves it. I plant my herbs at the beginning of Feb and I plant lettuce all the year round. The remainder of my garden is taken up with various types of shrubs and hedges which just need to be pruned in the Spring.
