  1. Depending on where you live, the average frost date of your last spring frost ranges from mid-May to the end of June. Cool-season vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and greens can tolerate a light frost. As such they can be started indoors now and will be ready to plant in the ground outside in about five to six weeks. Tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and other warm-season veggies need to go in the ground after all danger of frost has passed. If planted sooner they will require a cloche or protection of some sort. You can start sowing veggie seeds in pots indoors about six to eight weeks before your last spring frost. So if your expected last spring frost date is end of May or sooner you can start sowing seeds now. Otherwise, wait two to four weeks before sowing seeds for warm season veggies. Good luck!
