When to Plant Vegetables in the Fingerlakes Region?

The Finger Lakes region of New York, including the cities of Rochester and Syracuse, is a fertile area with a long gardening history. Cool-season veggies such as peas, beets, broccoli, kale, lettuce and greens can be planted as early as April, while warm-season veggies such as tomato, corn, peppers, squash and melons should wait until the treat of frost has passed, usually around the middle of May.
