What and When to Plant Vegetable Guide

This page lists the seasons when certain vegetables should be planted. This is not an all inclusive list. The recommendations are based on the climate and seasons of Northern California. Those who do not live in our area, may need to make modifications on when to plant. Since the weather can vary from year to year, some of the vegetables listed may need to be planted a little later or may be able to be planted a little earlier.
