When should I plant?

Pumpkin seedlings

For those growing outdoors, University of Maryland Extension's Home Garden Information Center has a wonderful color-coded calendar of dates to start seedlings and to seed outdoors in Maryland. 

For those growing in high tunnels or hoop houses, University of Delaware Extension has done research on when to plant different crops. You can find their report online here.
