OK, with my name in the subject line, I feel like I have to say something...
As I mentioned before, I'm going by the theory that you calculate back from average first frost date
= (days to maturity + 1 week for slower fall growth + 1 week for production period) things like peas, beans, cuke, etc. that you want producing for a while
= (days to maturity + 1 week for slower fall growth) for single production plants like corn, broccoli, carrots, etc.
Keep in mind that at the same time, things like broccoli, cauliflower, and lettuce can be protected from frost under cover (I'm aiming to attempt keeping my lettuce alive and "picking
" until Thanksgiving at least), B. sprouts are better after frost, and spinach, carrots, and daikon can be protected until hard freeze (and with heavy mulch, even through the winter....)
I'm experimenting with over-wintering under heavy mulch/cover -- veg's should be practically mature for best cold resistance. Of course if you live in warmer areas where things actually grow through the winter, then your Fall/Winter plans AND plants will be different.
I've the Brussels sprouts started of course, Romanesco-type Cauliflower also known as Broccoflower, and Russian Red Kale, a qt berry pack of heading lettuce starts.
Tried sowing peas 2 weeks ago -- 1 out of 6 pole peas growing in one area -- too hot for others? 3 in another area (under the cukes). 6" snap peas trying to produce pods -- too early?
Sowed more peas -- snap and shelling bush peas -- on Monday.
Am sowing more today after I dig up all the potatoes.
Last Monday, Direct seeded succession of bush beans, corn, and carrots. Tried sowing some lettuce and spinach though it may be too early, fall Daikon and some direct seeded broccoli (not sure if that will work). The Cauliflower that I thought I missed the chance on growing turns out to mature in 50 days so I'm going to start those today.
I NEED MORE GARDEN SPACE!
