I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME: time to give A Way to Gardeners a tool right here on the website for calculating when to start seed for vegetables, common flowers and herbs in spring. Like everything I publish and most everything in gardening, the new feature is based simply on how I think about things, not some hard-and-fast set of rules; all I can offer is my best guidance, not doctrine. (That’s why the website is called “A Way to Garden,” not “The Way to Garden.”) Go ahead: Try the new seed-starting calculator now.

hudson valley seed library, a seed company you can join
I’M CHECKING OUT SEEDS like mad in a lot of catalogs right now, but one seed company—Hudson Valley Seed Library—actually got its start a decade..
Thanks for answering my winter squash, cuke, melon seed starting question with your handy calculator! Nicely done.
Wow very nice!!
Right on for my area, Margaret. Nicely done!
found your site, very impressed. Thank you for being who you are. :)
Thank you, Kyle, for your very kind comment. See you soon again I hope.
Now, isn’t that handy. Thanks! Winter seems to be hanging on here. We get a few spring days and then a blast of cold again. Trying not to get ahead of myself for planting. Really sticking to that last average frost date this year (April 18 for us).
Looks like I’m a little ahead of schedule with my indoor plantings, but this is one winter when I needed to jump the gun to keep my spirits afloat! (Had trouble with the link posted under the red/white icon, but found a link that worked under “related posts”. Juts thought you might want to know. : )
Excellent calculator tool! It looks like the end of May will be a very, very busy time for me! Thanks, Margaret!
Hi, Kenn. Yes, madness here too. And seeds are the least of it!
