The following charts indicatestarting times and planting times for the vegetables we want to grow this year.
The blue columns and light blue columns show the weeks for the average last hard frost (28° F) in April, average last frost (32° F) in May, average first frost (32° F) in October and average first hard frost (28° F) at the end of October.
The # OF DAYS row tracks how many days there are before and after the average date of last frost (32° F) to give an idea of the starting period and outdoor growing period for tender vegetables.
When a vegetable is listed with a planting time but no starting time it indicates that we intend to sow the seeds directly outdoors; these are all plants that do not transplant well. Peas and beans do not transplant well, but they also grow so fast in the early season that it really doesn’t matter. Some vegetables that are planted twice throughout the season for an early and late harvest.
