Now that the snow is melting, it’s time to plant cool-weather crops outdoors, including leaf lettuce, arugula and spinach; root vegetables including carrots, radishes, turnips and parsnips; onions; and early season peas, according to Wasatch Community Gardens and Utah State University Extension program.
You can also start making your dreams of biting into home-grown tomatoes come to fruition by planting tomato seeds - along with peppers, eggplants, okra, tomatillos and basil - indoors. That gives them about six to eight weeks to grow before transplanting them outdoors after the last frost, which is usually in mid-May.
