March 17th is the planting date (in Zone 7a) for Broccoli, Collards, Kale, Red and Green Cabbage, Spinach, Orach, and Cauliflower.
With the exception of the Orach, all of these plants will need some sort of protection from Cabbage Worm, especially if you’ve planted Brassicas in your yard in previous years.
My favorite way to keep the cabbage worms off the plants in my spring garden are to place netting around the plants. I’m also experimenting by interplanting with tansy, which has an offensive smell to cabbage moth…I will let you know how that turns out 🙂
Below you’ll find some pictures and a description of the varieties we’re carrying this year. When you know what you want, send us a message either through the website form at the bottom of this page, through FB (www.facebook.com/thegreatfullgarden) or give me a good old fashioned phone call at 856-455-2294.

And please keep in mind that these plants are by NO MEANS the only plants for an Early Spring Garden. These are just the ones I’ve spent the winter months tending to. If you like snow peas, radishes, carrots and beets too, get in touch and we can talk about making an early spring garden happen for you. 🙂
