What Vegetables Should You Plant In March
This leafy green is a great vegetable for springtime harvest because it loves the colder weather, and you’ll be able to enjoy your spinach throughout springtime. Spinach won’t withstand the high levels of heat. So, if it's a hot summer, you might only get to enjoy it during the spring. However, if you live in a cooler climate, your spinach may thrive throughout the summertime. We recommend planting it in early March or about four to six weeks before the last frost.
These can typically be harvested in 30 days and are considered a fast-growing vegetable, which makes them great for planting in March. You’ll want to keep in mind that the ground will need to be thawed or not frozen when you go to plant them outside. If you’re going to start the seeds out in a container inside, make sure they are at least 12 inches deep.
Did you know radishes are the fastest growing vegetable? They only take 24 days to be ready for harvest! This means you can plant them in March or early April and enjoy them throughout springtime and summer. Radishes are a cool-weather crop: so you can replant them in August or September for fall harvest.
These are a must-plant in the early spring and will provide you with delicious tomatoes throughout the summer. Keep in mind: tomatoes love warmer weather. If it’s still too cold for the seedlings outside, you may want to start them inside and move them outside near the end of March. Keep in mind: tomatoes are a quick germinator. Once you get them planted, they'll start to take off. For this reason, some people like to plant them near the end of March or early April.
You can plant squash throughout March and April to expect a summertime harvest. This applies to almost all types of squash, even winter squash. We recommend being mindful of how much squash you plant. Squash tends to keep growing, and one plant can easily feed two people throughout summer. If you want to plant more, get ready to surprise your neighbors, friends, and family with tons of squash throughout summer.
These do great when you plant them during colder weather seasons, so you never need to worry if spring is coming early or not. Not only that but they also get brought to harvest rather quickly. So you can expect to enjoy them throughout the spring and summer months. Don't forget: timing is key for snow peas. If the weather is too warm, they won't mature when it comes time to harvest. We recommend planting them in early March for best results.
