Right now is the time to plant leafy vegetables like broccoli, lettuce and kale... strawberry plants can also go in the ground.

Herbs like mint and chives are also ready to be planted.

Now is a great time to plant seeds.  For instance, LaRene says to mix sugar or white sand with carrot seeds, then make a furrow in the ground and cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and water.  In a week to 10 days you should see them sprouting.

Fingerling potatoes are ready to be planted.  LaRene says select a piece of the potato with three to five eyes.  Garlic starts or a garlic clove can also be planted.

As far as flowers, now is a great time to plant columbines, English daisies, lilacs and more.
