When to plant broccoli, lettuce and peas in NJ?
I've never actually grown broccoli before. I have been reading up on when to plant it, but am still confused. Guidelines say to plant it when the soil can be worked (also peas and lettuce). But would'nt the cold temperatures hurt them? I don't get it- how can you know exactly when? And do you plant seeds or seedlings (which I have grown, they are small still).
Should I start lettuce indoors now? When should I palnt it?
If I grow peas, will they be done producing by the time it is to plant tomatoes? And again how do I know when to plant them exactly?
Thanks any advice appreciated. I just don't get it.
