When to plant

Asked March 28, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

Hi,

I'm new to Colorado, and am wondering if you have any fact sheets or info about the best time to plant different vegetables?

Thanks!

Yes we do have such information. I am hesitant to plant much of anything before May 10. On that day I look at weather.com to see what the next 10 day forecast is. That doesn't always work but it something to go by. I do plant the cole crops earlier. For example, I like to plant peas on St. Patrick's Day. This year it didn't work because the ground was buried in snow.

Happy Spring!!!
