Will this work? VCtLu

I'm completely new to gardening, an ambitious project that I hope I don't end up crying over later. Wink

Will the placement above work?
Can I grow all of these from seed?
Should I be looking at transplants?
Is it too late to start some of these veggies?

I could use a suggestion for the empty spot Very Happy

I live in Northern Georgia and the weather has started to warm up significantly but...that being said, we do get freak weather so who knows what will happen next week.

How far north of Atlanta do you live. I live 25 miles south of Atlanta. I planted my Broccoli seeds Feb 26. I went to two different plant nurseries this last weekend to buy some Broccoli transplants. Both nurseries said it was too late to plant Broccoli. They said it was better as a fall crop because of the spring/summer heat.

I hope mine have time to mature before it gets too hot.

First off glad you\'re here To the Forums!

I don't see anything amiss with your lay out, In fact it is a nice variety. as far as stating from seeds... I would buy broccoli starts. I am not sure about cabbage, I am sure someone who has grown it before will chime in. but the rest can be started from seed with now problem.

Again glad you\'re here

In the crazy heat we are having, I think the only chance we have now to have the cool weather crops is to buy starts. I was going to direct sow my spinach, but have decided to do starts in the hopes that I will get some before the heat gets em. The farmers up here started planting their cabbage plants last week. I put in broccoli starts last week.

I notice you've got 4 cabbage planned per square. Is this going to be too many plants of this type for a square? I was thinking they're treated like brussels sprouts or brocolli.

Ok,.so, what I'm gathering is I should buy starts for the cabbage and the spinach. The rest I'll just sow. I guess its going to take a little trial and error Smile

@ curio, yes, the cabbage will be one per. I just got lazy and forgot to remove the x4 after the copy and paste from the lettuce.

Suggestions on plants for the extra 3 spots?

We have a 2nd bed that we were going to use for Summer veggies. I'm sure I'll be back to post questions on that.

If you like spinach then you might like chard. Nice thing is it can take the summer heat. I sowed mine last Fri and it is sprouting aready. I also had kale that survived last summer's heat and is stil producing. Winterbor variety. I Will be pulling it this week to make room. I have kale plants in the greenhouse that need to be planted for a new season. During a normal year I would only be a week or two late planting outside, but this year I feel like I am running a month behind.

What about Swiss chard for your empty square? I planted 3 rainbow Swiss chard plants in a square (they came in a 3 pack) last year and was pleased. They were easy to grow, pretty to look at, and grew throughout our entire growing season (late May - September).

Our family of 4 couldn't always keep up with eating Swiss chard and the neighbors weren't quite sold on it. So I made quiches with it and froze them.
