Gardening...East Coast...early spring crops to plant now?

Recommended Posts



Loved seeing other garden threads. I was wondering if anyone could suggest early spring crops that would be okay to plant now. We're in southern New Jersey, have a large garden with lots of sun. It is actually a community garden plot. I know some greens maybe, radishes...anything else? Would love any suggestions.

Here's a quick list based on soil temperature:


  • 40° F or warmer: Lettuce, kale, peas, spinach.
  • 50° F or warmer: Onions, leeks, turnips, Swiss chard.
  • 60° F or warmer: Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, beans, beets.
  • 70° F or warmer: Tomatoes, squash, corn, cucumbers, melons, peppers.

Happy gardening!



Don't forget some flowers.


Bachelor buttons, nasturtiums, pansy (viola) & calendula would be good for interspersing in a veggie garden since they are edible. They all should be ok now.
