What to plant and when?

Evening all,
My partner, Helen, and I are moving to Portugal as from 1st May and we will be wanting to grow as much of our food as possible. I have been growing vegetables and herbs here in Jersey for a few years but realise that the books and advice I have are for a totally different climate.

I was wondering if people have a list of what vegetables to plant, and when?

We will be living somewhere in the Coimbra area, hopefully.

Many thanks
Peter & Helen

If you can grow parsnips then DO as they must be worth as much as gold in PT.

In an Algarve Intermarche they were on sale last week for over 8 EUROS/KG.

Judging by the quantity on offer and poor condition I suspect that they were getting few takers.

Sorry, I got the asparagus from my BIL up in Trancoso. I took a section from his plant. I have only managed to eat a few spears but the fern is nice in flower arrangements. I'm sure I've seen the crows in places like Agriloja. K

Hi Did you ever find a chart or plan for when to put veg in? They are just so common place in the UK and like you I have not been able to find a PT version of what to plant when?
