Spring and Fall Frost Date

If you were wondering "when is that last frost date here in NYC," below are two maps of first and last frost dates of the New York State season, courtesy of the wonderful people at Cornell University. These frost dates are "roundabout," so it is always wise to follow the weather when thinking of planting tender plants or deciding whether or not to harvest those last few tomatoes. Any given year we can push or pull these frost dates. But looking at those NYC dates tells me we in the city are very lucky indeed.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
