I am getting together my list of what's going to go in this year. I'll be heading off to buy mostly seedlings since it's past time for starting seeds for things like tomatoes and peppers and eggplant. ***I am wondering if I still have time for some things like lettuce, chard, beets, radishes. ***** I have never planted them so late. Is it worth trying? I am in Northern Virginia. I am going to get seeds for runner or pole beans and maybe squash, but I worry about direct seeding into this cold wet soil that has so many weeds newly tilled under. If there are plants available, I might go for those as seedlings also.
