Here is your vegetable planting schedule.  Having a continuous harvest garden is a nice way to ensure you have a variety of fresh home grown vegetables all season.  In some cases it may mean you get to enjoy your earlier harvests, and plan to preserve the last harvest for the upcoming winter.  I know, I know, it’s still THIS winter. But please, hear me out.

Vegetable Planting Schedule

You can usually get about 24 weeks of good or at least decent growing weather for a variety of veggies.  There are those that can be direct seeded before the last spring frost, such as peas, radishes, spinach and a few others.  You can pretty much get these seeds started in the ground as soon as your soil is workable.

Basically this chart shows you how to stagger your plantings, in order to optimize your harvest.  Your growing season may very well be different, so adjust accordingly. 

For example, if your ground is normally thawed in early April, or even late March, first let’s just say that I am suitably jealous.  Jealousy aside,   keep in mind that you can likely push these dates back a few weeks, and you can be putting your first batch of peas in the garden in the last week of March and then harvesting in the last week of May. 

Make sure you leave enough time at the end of the season to get your last crop out.
