Planting Schedule

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Hi everyone,
I have had quite a few requests again this year to post a planting schedule, because of space restrictions on this blog it is far easier to post a link to one.

Here is a link to some Vegetable, Flowers, and Herbs, in PDF format also a germination time table.

Keep in mind that our “average last date of frost” here in the Catskills is about May 15th or so, and if you live in a valley it could be later than that, so keep some type of covering for your plants handy!!
Usually after Memorial Day there is little worry of frost here. We are on the line between zones 4 and 5, but I like to use zone 4 as a little “safety net”

It is now 10 weeks before our last frost date here on our homestead so we are starting some of our hardy and very hardy plants indoors now. This week and next week should be a veritable frenzy to get them sorted, planted and on with the “thinning”. I really do love this time of year.

Remember that a small amount of planning can result in big dividends in your garden.

If you really want to make a difference maybe start your own organic garden. You can download a great guide by Clicking Here!  Or just click on the picture below

Happy Homesteading!! ,
Peace and Prosperity,

  • Hey Rich, I was just wondering if you had any idea how long open pollinated seeds would be good for when stored in glass air tight containers packed with desiccant and stored in a household freezer? Dan

  • Hi Dan,
    While some vegetable seed can remain viable in storage for as long as 15 years or more, and grains may remain viable much longer under stable environmental conditions, every year in storage will decrease the amount of seed that will germinate. They must be absolutely dry 3% moisture or less (just a guess)or they will freeze and rupture. Generally if they bend they are not dry enough.
