I was looking around at Brooklyn gardeners/bloggers and I found this link

Just type in your last frost date and a VERY detailed plan emerges.  Jeez, I thought I was organized with my crappy notes and drawings...

Enjoy

Thank you so very much.  I do try to do this the long way from the last few years notes.  This will make it so much easier.  I do have to say that I was only 5 days later than the chart for starting the tomatoes.

Bklngardengrl,

What a great find !!!  Thanks for sharing this....
I have a manual set up like this for the spring, but once the tomatos and peppers are in...

I leave it up to fate if I replant, I either have too  many boxes saved or not enough....this is so organized.

By looking at both the Spring and Fall plan it should be easier to "hold" some of the boxes for later planting...

Honestly, you made my day with this !

I am so glad you like it, I thought it was really helpful, too! 

I've got it bookmarked to my Garden folder... now we'll see if I can keep up with the schedule!

Here is another interactive planting tool. This one goes into a lot more detail for weekly tasks: Indoor sowing, outdoor sowing, transplanting, hardening off, etc.... all in easy to read format, table or list. It even lists 'last chance' actions.
