Oregon Harvest for Schools: Planning the Planting Calendar

After introducing students to the variety of vegetables in the Brassica family, have students create a garden-growing calendar for 3-5 different Brassica crops using the planting dates and days to maturity listed at the Burpee Growing Calendar site. This is the link for the online Burpee Growing Calendar. Using the Burpee Growing Calendar site, students simply type in their zip code and choose vegetables in the Brassica family. Beautiful pictures and planting months appropriate for their zip code will be listed.
