Almanac: 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 Almanac site. Using the Almanac Growing Calendar site, students simply type in their zip code and choose vegetables in the Brassica family. Seed sowing and transplanting dates appropriate for their zip code will be listed.
