When do plant (from seed I presume?) broccoli and other fall veggies in your area? I planted snap peas in middle of August but they're not producing anything except foilage. Am frustrated. What about cabbage and lettuce? I figure maybe if I use your dates I'll be able to produce something... ::crosses fingers and hopes::

Nayan --- This post should help you nail down fall planting dates for any climate, while the spreadsheet linked at the bottom of this post gives specifics for our own garden. But there's nothing quite like taking notes on your own garden and planting earlier or later the next year if your first impulse doesn't quite work out. Good luck!

Thank you!!!! That is extremely helpful and I appreciate the link as well. Seems our First Frost date is pretty much the same as yours.
