CLARKSVILLE, TENN.— The time is getting ripe to plant vegetable seedlings, but with one caveat: They have to be the right vegetables.

And certainly those people can plan. But for those who want something in the ground, right now, the cold weather vegetables are the safe bet.

Karla Kean is a Montgomery County horticulture extension agent for the Tennessee State University cooperate extension.
