I've been able to track most of my plants to an average weeks pre-frost-date. Yet 4 elude me...
*Corn I assume is a direct seed since the root system is pretty epic and no books even hint at early starts.
*Chives (specifically garlic chives) The books don't mention starting this early or even when to direct seed. I imagine it acts a bit like dill in that I could start them early or sow them directly and then in successions.
*Catnip. Not sure if it's cranky like lavender and rosemary or a cakewalk like cat grass. Anyone familiar with it?
*Summer squash (pattypan) I know you can give winter squash a boost in colder zones but do the more vivacious summer squash tend to benefit or will direct seeding be sufficient?
