Ray, didn’t get your attachment.  What kind of berries do you have, btw?

 

Respectfully,

Hi Jennifer, 

 

Attached is the planting guide I use here in Jamesville (which is about 700 feet up, about 300 higher than Syracuse, so frost is often later).

 

The main things that matter for planting are your spring and fall frosts.  I have mine based on May 20th as last possible frost in the Spring and October 1st as first frost in the fall.  You can just move the dates up or back a week depending on your frosts, but I would think they are probably similar to Jamesville where you are.

 

The other thing that matters is soil temperature.  I have found beans, tomatoes and other warm loving plants don't produce any earlier for me if I get them out earlier because they like soil temps at 70 or above.  

 

This spreadsheet has four main dates.  When to plant seeds indoors, when to harden off the seedlings (bring your seedlings outside for 4-7 days before you transplant or they sometimes die) and when to transplant the seedlings into the ground after hardening as well as direct seed dates into the ground those that aren't started indoors. 

 

Feel free to let me know (or anyone else) if you have any questions.  It is still just my hobby but the garden is up to 2500 sq ft with 3 berrry patches and would be bigger if I could just get more yard.  This has been created by part packet directions and part experience the last 6 years here.  I also may move things up or back depending on the weather.   Also, root veges often taste better after the first frost, so I try to plan planting later in the year to take advantage of that...  

 

Hope all is well, we are expected #4 baby today, so things have been beyond busy with the family with us.

 

Ray

Hi, everyone!  Does anyone know of a good planting guide for our area?  I found this one for Albany, but we're just north of Rome.  I could always just add a couple of weeks to the Albany guide, but figured if there was a good CNY resource available, I might as well use that one.

 

Also, who raises chickens, either for eggs and/or for meat?  And did you build your own chicken coup?  What did you do during the winter?  Again, any 2-cents on that, I'd be appreciative!
