Need Help From Gardener About Planting
I'm new to growing plants, and I just bought seeds for Italian Parsley, Thyme, Cilantro, Sweet Basil, Dill Bouquet, Oregano, Sweet Marjoram, Chives, Summer Savory, Garlic Chives, Mustard and Culinary Sage. I'm in zone 7, so I'm able to plant this during the fall right? I also bought a seed starter. I may buy a small greenhouse for these plants.

Where exactly is zone 7? I know gardening, but am unfamiliar with the zonage terminology.

Only way you're gonna grow that stuff is inside, it will be to cold at night for those plants to grow.

You could put them in the ground right now, like TODAY, and POSSIBLY get a harvest before October 1st.

It's been about 70 degrees at night. Do you think I could grow them in a hot house during the winter?

Absolutely. Shit, it's so late in the season, I would just grow them indoors anyway. Just make sure you get them the nutrients they need. Also - make sure they have enough dirt for root systems to grow.

The less you move them around, the more successful they will be. (Start them in bigger pots)

I might just hold onto them until spring then. The seeds are good for another 3 years. Anything that will grow during the winter?

Is it too late to start seed? Pumpkin, butternut, acorn, spaghetti squash, etc... What about greens, ie: collard, chard, spinach? Perhaps cruciferous veggies (cabbage, broccoli)?

Those are all herbs, so...

Just keep em out of the 11-4 sun. Keep em moist but not ever saturated. They won't need any direct sun while you're getting your hand at germination.

No, you can seed everything you just listed right there and you should be fine... the flowers will be out by then, and hopefully by October you'll be looking at some nice squashes... All the greens you listed are good too, because the have a fast grow rate.

You can grow all of that stuff as fall crop.

The cucurbits will be cutting it close but winter type squashes will be fine.

Mustard family will go on till the snows.

Sweet peas, lettuce, etc also like it cool.

Brussel sprouts--only way to go this late and that far north.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Ugh! I really hate brussel sprouts. I might have to try them, though, just to see if they will grow under my no-so-green thumb...lol

Maybe Yes, but they will need light upon them.
Some people use flourescent tubes to grow plants inside their
houses:
