Now is a great time to plant fruit trees, berries, and all hardy herbs. Fresh in: exotic edibles from all around the world: jujubes, caper bushes, kiwi vines, sansho, goumi, pawpaws, and pistachios!
Cool-tolerant vegetable starts can be planted now. This includes peas, lettuce and other greens, the cabbage family, root vegetables including potatoes, and onions. The first tomatoes will be here mid-month for people with greenhouses or a warm window, but the rest of us need to contain our impatience until it's warmer.
