    When is the best time to plant winter cabbage?

    Because of the excessive heat and little rain, we forwent our garden this year.  I want to plant a winter garden with some cabbage, carrots and raddishes, maybe even pole beans.  When is a good time to plant the seeds?  By the way, I live in Western Kentucky where the climate can be mild through December (38 for lows....sometimes 60s for high)

    Hi backporchstories,
    I love your name! I would think you could start in Mid-March w/ seeds and early April w/ seedlings. If there is still a danger of frost, you could put on row covers for protection. I guess you could start seeds in pots earlier with a cold frame if there is enough sunlight. Sorry the weather for you has been so awful this year!
