When is the first frost date?
I'm trying to plan seeding my fall vegetables and I think should be planting them 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date. I'm not even sure if the 6 to 8 weeks means when to start seed versus when to transfer new plants. I can sort of figure it out by the dates on the seed pack but really need to know when the "end date" is. I did a Google search and came with a date range of October 5, 2009 (from Victory Seed Company) to November 7, 2009 (Farmers' Almanac). Since those sources differ by 4 weeks, which seems a lot, I was wondering what was the real experience with others in the zone 5 area. I realize ever year is different but would appreciate the "voices of experience". Thank you.
