A useful planting guide can be found in Growing Small Farms website. 

The guide is for Piedmont NC.  

Here on the coast, we can plant earlier in the spring and later in the fall.  

      Season extension can extend the growing season for many vegetables. 

            Our mild temperatures will let us garden through the winter.
