Hi Awesome website. I am very new to planting veges, I wanted to make sure I was understanding the info above. I was wondering how to interpret the chart above. P is for sow - so that is placing the seeds in the soil right?. Harvest is 7 to 10 weeks from sowing right? What about the blank months?

Have a look at different crops. Some have S and T. S is when the weather is too hot or cold you can plant under cover, out of the sun or away from cold or frosts. T is for when you transplant these seedling into the garden. Harvest means when you can pick it from sowing the seeds.

Yes, P is for sow direct into soil. The blank months are the ones not suitable for seed raising outside, either because it is too cold and wet or too hot and dry.
