Like most people, you are probably anxious to get your garden planted as soon as possible this year. Finally, the days are getting longer, and the weather is starting to warm up, so it's time to start thinking about those delicious fresh vegetables that will be gracing our tables in the months ahead. This planting guide will provide information on what vegetables can be planted in Lincoln during the spring season. So grab your green thumb gloves, and let's get started!

One of the most favorite vegetables to plant in the spring is tomatoes. Tomatoes are a warm-weather crop, so you should plant them after all danger of frost has passed. Lincoln's average last frost date is April 30th, so you should wait until at least that date to plant your tomatoes.

Another vegetable that does well in the spring is peas. Peas are a cool-weather crop, so you can plant them before the last frost date.

Lettuce is another cool-weather crop that does well in the spring. So you can plant lettuce can as early as mid-March in Lincoln.

Some other vegetables that you can plant in the spring in Lincoln and surrounding areas are carrots, potatoes, and onions. These vegetables can all tolerate some frost and can be planted before the last frost date.

If you want to get a jump on the growing season, you can start your vegetable seeds indoors. This will give your plants a kick start on the growing season and will allow you to harvest your vegetables earlier.

This is just the beginning of some of the vegetables that can be planted in Lincoln during the spring season. For more information on planting dates and crop schedules, consult your local extension office or gardening center. Happy planting!
