    • Hi Shareef,

      You can pretty much plant anything right now. The cool weather means most things will grow very well. It is only when we get to the end of April that the heat will become stronger.

      Depending on whether you eat these vegetables, the following grow well now – kale, turnip, cabbage, tomatoes, zuchinni, aubergine, pumpkin, bok choy, arugula, peppers and corn.

      If you want to plant something else, such as fruit, it would be more difficult without doing extensive work on your soil.

      Good luck!
