when can i start growing lettuce and broccoli outside
anytime - now is good.
I bought a container of lettuce, (4 varieties) from Menards about 3wks ago and some Brocolli plants and put them in the ground then. Three of the lettuce are now finally taking hold and growing. (I think a squirrel took the 4th one) The Brocolli sat awhile but now have doubled in size. Cooler spring but the wetness has been good. They are all in raised beds and one has a storm window on hinges that I have used to cover the brocolli at first in case of frost that didn't happen. I am in St Paul, Mn.
