Q.Planting Vegetable Seeds

Anonymous added on March 20, 2014 | Answered

I am in Raleigh NC. Today I have planted vegetable seeds into my garden (corn, sugar snap peas, green beans, eggplant, bell peppers). Have I hurt anything by planting directly into the soil, and is this too early?

It is a bit premature for planting many of these crops in your area, as most will need temps of at least 65 degrees F. to grow well. Worst case senario for seed planting, however, is either slow or no germination. You will pretty much have to wait this one out and see how it goes. Should your more tender plants sprout, you can always add row covers for protection in cooler temps.
