It is March 15th . What kinds of plants can I plant now,that would live if some frost hit them.
These babies would withstand a bit of frost & can be sown now:
chard / leaf lettuces / mustard greens / mesclun mix / turnips / radishes
spinach / cilantro / carrots / parsley (tho very slow to germinate)
chinese cabbages (bok choi, joi choi, mizuna, mispoona...)
snow peas / snap peas / green peas
(note: pea vines are hardy but not the pods, which won't be up for another 6-8 weeks anyhow)
That's all I can think of right now. Anyone else?
Along with what Bushpoet suggested I would suggest that you plant your Irish Potatoes,Beets and Head Cabbage, whatever varity you like. Also get your onions in the ground
Hey bushpoet, your from my neck of the woods (where I grew up anyway) Now I am slightly up the river in Tarrytown. WE can plant those NOW! Who Knew!
What about Brocolli Rapini - I started them too early and I would love to get them in the ground
That's right, Gardentechz7. And I just remembered the cool-loving flowers like violets, heartsease, moonflower & california poppies.
enjayare, if that's broccoli rabe you could try hardening off for a week or so then leaving them out under frost covers? But I suspect they are really a fall crop & might bolt... I understand your frustration though: some of my wintersowing sprouted before I could get them out of the house (LOL) and I've been babying them under lights - but the maters & peppers are clamoring for more room, so I'm going to attempt to harden them off to a hoophouse this weekend (gorgeous weather today in NY, eh!).
