When to plant a vegetable garden
Except in the middle of winter but even
then in some places you can plant
a vegetable garden. So when to plant

the spring or the
If you are thinking of planting a vegetable garden, stop thinking and do it.
Do your reading in the winter in front of the fire and get yourself all psyched up ready to go when the weather starts to warm up. When you are planning to plant a veggie garden don’t worry about all the technical stuff about soil temperature and NPK and all those sort of things, just do it. ‘Nature will find a way’ a great line from one of the Jurassic Park movies, but very true.
When to plant a vegetable garden is when seeds will grow and give a seed sunlight and water and it will grow.
So don’t plant too early unless you can cover the new plants or else the frost will get them. And that means covering the plants with newspaper or cloth. Plastic is not too good because if it is just laying on top of the plants the cold will still affect the plants, but if it is suspended above the plants it is good.
I prefer to use cover crops that is why I like spinach. If you are turning your lawn into a veggie garden mow the grass as short as possible then throw spinach seeds around or poke a hole in the grass and into the soil and drop a seed in. Spinach is fast growing so in spring it should cover the grass and hopefully kill it off.
