Zone 8 has a moderately long growing season, enough to allow long season vegetables time to ripen.
A last frost date of mid to late March and a first frost date of early November mean a frost-free growing season from early April to late October. These dates are general guidelines, so watch the weather forecasts before planting.
A longer growing season with an average low temperature of 15°F means starting longer season vegetables indoors will give good harvests.
Scroll down to see the vegetable planting guide. The orange color shows when to start seedlings indoors, the yellow is times to transplant or direct sow and the green is harvest dates.
