If you wish, subscribe to one of the kitchen garden planning sites, such as ones at territorial seed, gardeners.com, etc. The first month is free, then it's only $25 per year.

Periodically you'll receive e-mails that include which plants may be sown or set out at that time. Or, you could contact your local extension service, which probably has a planting calendar online. Also, your friendly local nursery should be able to provide advice for your specific area and conditions.

Go for it!

I already checked the extension service. For instance they say that asparagus can be planted "through November." I figure the plants can't exactly read the calendar, so sure December 5th isn't too risky unless we get a killer cold snap. I guess when in doubt, plant. Seeds are pretty cheap after all.

I am pretty close to your area, I guess what zone map you look at.
carrots
turnips
broccoli
cabbage
collards
spinach
beets
onions
garlic
kale
swiss chard
leeks
scallions
lettuce
and probably more!
I plant peas the first 2 weeks in Jan. They love it if it snows. Over here they reccomend planting peas in Nov. and Dec. but it is really too hot, 80 deg. days is too hot for peas.

If the weather man predicts snow (we get about 2 snow storms per yr)
I keep some plastic handy, I run out and just throw over beds that have tender stuff in them, lettuce, spinach, maybe chard, this is my first yr growing chard?. I try to plant them in the same bed so plastic is only on 1 bed.

Thanks littlejo. I already have Swiss chard, savoy cabbage, romaine, leaf lettuce, kale and spinach well along. Am wondering what would be best to start outdoors now, if anything. We really never get a hard freeze here below 1" soil dept, but with raised beds it could get tricky. I saw a tip either in the ANSFG book or online about using old-fashioned Christmas lights around your beds to keep the soil warm. We have had several nights over the last few weeks in the low 30's/upper 20's. I covered my beds and used the lights, and everybody looks healthy and happy...even a little parsley and cilantro that I planted back in early October.

I don't know about the lights, you'd have to use the old timey ones that put out some heat. I've not had any problems with anything unless it gets down like 17 and remains there all day.
