My Vegetable Planting Calendar for Cold Climates

As I write this, there’s about 4 feet of snow piled against the south side of the greenhouse, the pond is almost completely obscured and the chickens are getting a little stir-crazy having been cooped up in their house. The thermometer reads 10 degrees F, which seems balmy compared to the subzero temperatures that we’ve been experiencing over the past couple of weeks.

But, believe it or not, it really is time to start planning for the growing season ahead. 

In my video today, I wanted to share one of the most useful resources I have in my vegetable gardening toolkit – the Planting Calendar. In gardening, especially in cold climates, timing is everything. This Planting Calendar will give you a good guideline for what to plant when as we move into spring. It will also give you an idea of when to start your seeds indoors. Click on the video to learn more and then download my calendar below!

    1. I don’t plant by moon phases, but I do think there is a lot to be said for doing so. Try it out this year and let me know how it goes!
