I’m a new organic backyard gardener because I use it in homeschooling my daughter. As I wrap up fall harvesting, I know that I have to get my winter seeds going now so they will be of transplant size by the time I need them.
Our last Orlando frost date according to Floridata is Jan 31, 2008. Which means some of the things you may want to eat might need to go into the ground in two weeks! Did you get your seeds started in time or were you distracted with Thanksgiving like I was? What about the stuff that you can still get going in time to catch the Cold Season for growing? Do planting guide charts confuse you as much as they confuse me?
Happily, I found a great “cheat sheet” made up by local blogger Maggie Wang. You punch in your frost date and bam! You go look at what herb or veggie you want to grow and it tells you when you need to be getting your seeds started.
I’m going to be way late on parsley but I have a good chance at getting everything else started on time! Thanks, Maggie!
