Cool Season Crops

It is now time to start planning and planting cool season crops so that they can mature before the hot weather begins in Texas.
Cool season crops include:
·         Arugula
·         Beets
·         Broccoli
·         Brussels sprouts
·         Cabbage
·         Collards
·         Carrots
·         Cauliflower
·         Celery
·         Chard
·         Fennel
·         Kale
·         Kohlrabi
·         Lettuce
·         Mustard greens
·         Onions
·         Bok choy
·         Peas
·         Potatoes
·         Radishes
·         Spinach
·         Coriander (cilantro)

This year my cool season crop will consist of broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, onions, peas, spinach and cilantro.  I have already planted my onions. In February I will directly sow carrot, peas and spinach seeds in my garden. Usually I buy transplants of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce and cilantro from my local garden store. This year instead I have bought seed packets of these plants when they were on sale at 40% off their regular price. I am going to attempt to grow them from seed. I have already planted them in my greenhouse and will move them out to my garden when the seedlings have gotten off to a good start. If they do not grow well from seed I will then buy the transplants from the garden store.
