Veggies + Herbs

Vegetables are classed as either warm- or cool-season, depending on the weather they need for best growth.

Cool-season veggies grow best at temperatures averaging 15° cooler than those needed by warm season types. Many cool-season veggies have edible leaves or roots (lettuce, spinach, carrots, and radishes); others (artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower) are grown for their immature flowers. A few (peas, broad beans) produce edible seeds.

Warm-season veggies require both warm soil and high temperatures (with a little cooling at night) to grow steadily and produce crops. For almost all of these vegetables, the fruit (rather than the roots or leaves), is the edible part. Warm season crops are killed by winter frosts, so don’t plant them until after the last frost in spring unless you give them cold protection.
