April planting, 'cool weather garden'

If you're like me, the minute the sun shines for more than 2 days straight you get anxious to plant things.  Whether it's flowers or vegetables, the idea of being outside and getting your hands dirty just sounds appealing.  In fact, just the other day I went to a nursery and picked out a beautiful array of flowering plants, as I got to the register the lady looked at my array and kindly informed me, "those can't be planted yet, it's still too cold".  :(   (I put them back)


 But there are plants that CAN be planted now in the first weeks of April.  In fact you can start your own cold weather garden now.  About a week before the last frost occurs the following can be planted in your garden:
~beans
~squash
~corn 

Even though these plants can be planted early in April it is important to cover any growth that has come up out of the ground when there is a frost expected.


There are other veggies that can be planted in April such as:
~asparagus
~beets
~cauliflower
~radish
~spinach
