Garden peas and their relatives, snow peas and sugar snaps, thrive in the cool weather of early spring. Now is the time to plant them and several other vegetables for harvest later this spring. Vegetables that produce during the spring months are known as cool season crops, meaning they can tolerate some frost but do not like hot weather and should be planted outside now to harvest before the heat of summer. Other vegetables that can be planted in February include broccoli, lettuce, carrots, cabbage, and potatoes.
