When to plant and when to prepare soil

13 years ago

I am told that certain vegetables such as spinach or lettuce should be planted early, maybe even as early as mid-April. Is this recommended? If so, what vegetables typically are planted this time of year?

When should the soil be prepared? I read a little bit stating that soil should wait to be prepared until May when it is dryer and warmer, but that would make planting the early vegetables impossible. How do people handle this?
