figuring out when to plant for fall veggies
Yes, I know we're still planting summer veggies, but I've decided this year I'm going to try to start some seeds for fall. I want to do brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and romanesco broccoli. I have checked my states extension center list, but I don't understand it. The packages of seeds say to direct plant the seeds in the garden for a fall harvest. The planting guide says "Broccoli (plants)" and that for central Missouri July 25-August 5. All of the cole crops say (plants). Does that mean I start the plants indoors and plant the starts outdoors July 25 to August 5? Or do I plant seeds? If I start them from seeds, will it work? And when do I start them? Can I start them outside?
Sorry for all the questions, but I've never done the fall garden and I'd like to know how.
