Cool Season Garden

WhiteHouseCool

“Our cool-season garden features vegetables and herbs that thrive in the chillier weather of spring and  fall.  Sow seeds of lettuces, spinach, chard, peas, beets, and carrots directly in the soil as soon as the garden can be worked in early spring and again four to five weeks before the first average fall frost. Start seeds indoors of kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions four to five weeks before the last average spring frost and again in midsummer for a fall harvest. Thyme and chives are planted just once; these hardy perennial herbs come back year after year. … Consideration is also given to space-saving traits. Vine crops (climbing peas and pole beans) are grown vertically on a 5-foot-tall trellis in the back of the bed.” http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plans/vegetable/white-house-inspired-kitchen-gardens/
