This is my first year gardening. I live in a loft in downtown Kansas City, so I've never really been able to garden, but this year I reserved a 500 sq foot plot at a community garden just about ten minutes from my place. I'm so very excited! I've been reading everything I can. Of course I have a million questions, but it seems that my biggest dilema centers around veggies like cabbage that like cold weather. I don't have access to the garden until sometime in April, and it closes again in October or November. I guess my question is this: should I try the cold weather veggies like cabbage if I can't plant them until the mid to late April, or is it even worth the effort? I was planning on doing most of the planting around the first week of May.
