When Should I Plant Cool Season Crops In Utah?
April is the time to plant cool season crops in Utah. Cool season crops are things like lettuce, spinach, broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and brussels sprouts. The lettuce and spinach can be planted from seed. The broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and brussels sprouts are purchased as small plants at the garden center and planted right into the vegetable garden in April. Amazingly, these plants will survive a snowstorm or a light frost. They will take off in May and June and by mid summer you will be harvesting them! Cool season vegetables are a great way to expand your production of home grown vegetables.
