What Can Be Planted Indoors for Early Spring Garden – Zone 5

Here’s a list from Squidoo.com, of all places, of what we can be planting indoors right now for our early spring garden – this is for us zone 5 people. For other zones, adjust up or down a few weeks. So, what spring seeds will you be bringing to the swap? Be sure to rsvp on our events page…

First Week of January

Leek can be started indoors, from seed, in the beginning of the month of January and transplanted outdoors to the vegetable garden 8 weeks later. Usually, this is done in March as soon as the ground can be worked. Leek is a warm and cold weather crop, so it can continue to be successively planted throughout the summer. Some varieties of leek take up to 120 days to mature, so to ensure it can be harvest in time, leek should be planted directly in the garden no later than July 15th.

Mid-January

Celery can be started indoors, from seed, in the middle of January. The celery will be ready to transplant out to the garden 6 weeks later. As with leek, this is usually done in early March, as soon as the ground can be worked.
