Some cool weather vegetables can be started inside now–or soon–depending on the last frost date in your area.

Other seeds are sown directly outside.

As their name implies, cool weather vegetables can withstand cooler temperatures in the air and soil, which means you can plant them outside in early spring. Cool weather vegetables include broccoli, kale, cabbage, collards, endive and onions.

See this previous article where Patti Jablonski-Dopkin, general manager of Urban Roots Cooperative Garden Market, explains the details of starting cool weather vegetables from seed.
