CLARKSVILLE, TENN.— The time is getting ripe to plant vegetable seedlings, but with one caveat: They have to be the right vegetables.
Yes, many people dream of having a kitchen garden from which they can mine peppers and tomatoes for salsa, tomatoes and cilantro for gazpacho and lettuces for summer salads. 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.
