What To Plant “Month to Month” in Zone 7B

Southeasterly Farms is located in Southeast Oklahoma in Zone 7B. Our average date of last frost is around April 15th. Keep in mind, “average” is not equal to “last” meaning there is still a 50/50 chance that a frost could still occur. With that being said it is still a great idea to get a jump on the growing season by starting seeds indoors that will be ready to transplant outdoors as it closer to our last frost date. I have included a simple what to plant “month by month” guide of things that can be started from seed indoors for transplant, direct sown outdoors as well as when to transplant your seedlings outdoors. I hope this growing guide helps you on your way to growing a beautiful summer garden!
