Counting the Days to Maturity: Calculating planting dates for fall vegetables

Here is a useful article for those of you who are home gardeners and are starting to think about planting fall crops. It’s from The Garden Professors blog, the other blog I contribute to. This one is written by John Porter of University of Nebraska Extension. He includes a map that shows fall frost dates to help you do the calculations for when you need to start your cool-season crops. It might be hot now, but it’s not too early to think about those cooler temperatures!
