There are many steps to planning a growing space. But before we can plant or finalize what to grow, we had to know when we physically could and could not grow in our area. To do this we looked at three maps.
One of the maps showed the climate zones of the whole US, and another showed just New York state. The climate zone is based on the average yearly minimums temperature. Basically, it says how low we can go. Buffalo is in zone 6. This means usually our coldest temperature is between 0 and -10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stay tuned as we continue to plan Da Garden.
Samiyah, or "Sam," is interested in growing practices and the biomedical implications of food, and she hopes to be a holistic medical care provider someday.
