Hello, I live just outside of Detroit, Michigan and I am looking to plant some veg for a fall harvest.

I want to plant broccoli, beets, tom thumb peas, carrots and brussel sprouts. When should I start seeds indoors (or out) for an optimal harvest? If you could tell me for each, I'd greatly appreciate it.


Thank you

Your USDA growing zone (link) is probably 6a with -10f winter lows.

The growing season for plants can vary by temps. It slows the chemical process down. Here are your temps. Below 55 things really get slower.

You have to plan a fall garden differently there. Pots and ways to bring it inside come to mind.

Perhaps buying plants already started in a greenhouse would make up lost time.

Find your average first frost date. Then look on the seed packets for how many days to maturity. This will tell you if you have enough time. You can always plant radishes. They grow fast.
