Seems like it is a good time of year to share this resource with you.  Don't
want you to forget, you can be planting things now to harvest before winter
settles in...  brrr.

Last Planting Dates

*Average First Fall Frost: October 1*

Questions often arise on how late a vegetable can be planted in the garden
in New York State and still reach maturity or usable size before frost or
cold weather stops growth.  The last dates listed below for each crop are
based on observations at Ithaca, NY.  Most years the crop will reach the
harvestable stage if planted by the date indicated, but yields of crops
requiring multiple harvesting (tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc.) likely
will be rather light unless the fall weather is warmer than normal, and
first frosts are unusually late.  In parts of New York where the fall
weather averages milder than in Ithaca, planting a week to ten days later
might be possible; for cooler areas move the dates 7-10 days earlier.
