Succession Gardening: Planting Dates for Second Crops @ Old Farmer’s

Would you like to extend your growing season? Our succession gardening chart below shows the last planting dates for second-season crops.

A second harvest can dramatically increase your yield—and allow you to enjoy fresh vegetables into fall and winter. In addition, fall gardening is often easier since there are less pests and problems in cooler weather. Finally, a fall “cover” crop can organically protect and build your soil.

To calculate the best time to plant your second vegetable crops, look at the first expected freeze dates. Choose the date that comes closest to the expected first killing frost in your area. If you do not know the date, see our Frost Charts.
