Gardening: Planting Seedlings Indoor In March

Time to Plant Tomatoes, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Okra and Peppers!


Gardening is a frugal thing to do. It is so wonderful to have fresh produce in your own back yard. Every year we plant a garden in our yard. Usually we just wait until after frost and plant everything at the same time. This year I thought we would be a little more strategic and plant our seeds according to the recommendations.

I am planting my tomatoes this week. March is also the time to plant Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Okra and Peppers if you live in the Northern United States. If you are in a central area you will want to wait until April. If you are in the south you can plant before March. So if you have not yet, do it now!

To plant your seeds now you will need:

So go forth and plant your first seedlings and I will let you know when it is time to plant more vegetables.

  • I was thinking of getting mine planted until I realized it might snow this week. Perhaps I’ll just get some starters going for now.
    Monica did you know Fushia Week at Fred Meyers is April 13th from 7am-4pm?
    I’ve never been so excited over free dirt! lol!

  • Tomatoes to be planted indoors. Things to plant outside now in the NW are cabbage, broccoli, spinach, chard, turnips, radishes, beets, lettuces. Seriously, you eat okra???? I even grew up in Georgia, and I wouldn’t touch okra with a ten-foot pole! Things that are fuzzy on the outside and slimy (I’m really thinking “snotty”) on the inside were not meant to be consumed by man, that’s my motto! You can’t put enough breading and hot grease on ’em to make me eat ’em! Can’t wait to get my hand in the dirt!

  • I planted my seeds last weekend (3/2) and I read online you could plant in compost. Is that true? I planted in homemade compost but still haven’t seen any sprouting. Now I am worried compost is too much for my poor little seeds. Do you know anything about that? This is my first attempt at gardening!

    • I am not a gardening expert. When we use compost we usually mix it in really well with the soil.
      I am sure we have followers that are expert gardeners.
      Maybe one of our other followers has some more advice for you and can chime in too. 🙂
