When to Plant a Vegetable Garden in Kansas


Kansas is a Midwest state well known for its agriculture. Like farmers, backyard gardeners in Kansas need to know when the time is right to plant the seeds and plants that will become their vegetable garden.


  • Where you live in Kansas will determine when to begin planting your vegetable garden. The state is divided into three of the USDA's hardiness zones. The parts of the state that are farthest north will be cooler and have a shorter growing period than the southern portions.

Time Frame

  • Cold-weather crops can be planted as early as March in Kansas. This includes lettuce, cabbage, spinach and broccoli. These crops can handle some frost and must be finished producing vegetables by the time summer's heat arrives.


  • Once the last danger of frost has passed, usually by mid to late May depending on where you live in Kansas, it's safe to plant tender, warm-weather vegetables. These include tomatoes, peppers and beans.
