    Lettuce and Spinach

    I live in Zone 5B, Buffalo New York, and a few days of beautiful weather has me impatient to set out my lettuce and spinach on my porch already. Am I jumping the gun a bit? I know greens prefer cooler weather, but do not know if this extends to those in containers. Thanks!

    Hi There! I am Micci from South Africa and new to the chat. I find it interesting that you plant your veggies in containers. What kind of lettuce and Spinach did you plant and how old are they?

    Hi GardeningV,

    Having lived where you are, I would suggest you make some type of cold frame to set your pots in until all threat of frost has passed. Here's a map that gives the approximate last frost dates.

    Here's another site as I find the colors in that one hard to read in the lighter blues. Just click on your state.
