We live on the East Coast about 30 minutes from Charlottesville, Virginia and we\\\'re about to put both collard greens and Swiss Chard out for our spring garden. I was wondering what would be the earliest time for both.

It is almost certain you will not get frost after May 7 in your growing zone.

You can grow these crops in a cold frame and plant much sooner.
