Now Sowing: Lettuce (Jan~Feb, Sept~Nov)

Seed Saving Level: Easy: Perfect, self-pollinating flowers. Little out-crossing with lettuce so isolation is not a big concern.

Now Sowing: Broccoli

Broccoli likes full sun to light shade. Plant seeds ¼-½˝ deep. Seeds can also be started indoors 4-6 wks before planting.

Now Sowing: Leeks (Jan-Feb, Sept-Nov)

Instead of producing a bulb, leeks produce a long stem of edible bundled leaves with many culinary purposes.

Now Sowing: Parsley (Jan~Feb, Sept~Nov)

Parsley enjoys cool temperatures and moist soil. Parsley can tolerate cold temps if mulched.

Now Sowing: Cauliflower

Seed Saving Level: Advanced, may cross with other B. Oleracea members, including cabbage, broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, kohlrabi.

Now Sowing: Spinach (Jan~Feb, Sept~Nov)

Spinach grows best in cool, mild climates but is also tolerant of hot weather.

Now Sowing: Onions (Jan~Feb, Sept~Nov)

Onions will cross with each other, but not with leeks or chives. Seeds germinate better in darkness.

Now Sowing: Bok Choy (Jan-Feb, Sept-Nov)

Bok Choy needs cooler weather to flower. Normally requires two growing seasons to produce seed.
