When to plant a vegetable garden, Sow these vegetables any time from January to March in Zone 7 for a spring harvest and again in mid-summer for a fall harvest. They are hardy and can tolerate temperatures lower overnight and until a frost or two will not do much damage. It is best to start seedlings indoors six weeks before you want to plant outside. The seeds may be difficult to germinate if the soil is too cold, too hot or if there is insufficient moisture.

When to plant a vegetable garden? For an autumn garden, plant transplants in midsummer. Start with internal seed about 6 to 8 weeks before planting outside. Plan to begin your inner garden transplants autumn seed in mid-June. This gives the plants an advantage if you have an early frost or snow. Before planting out, you should acclimate your transplants. To harden the seedlings, put them out to get used to the sun and changing temperatures.
