What types of fruits & veggies can you grow in the NEW ENGLAND area, and more so in New Hampshire?

And from what time of the year?

Thank you,

I'm in the SE so I don't know what they are growing up there. Less sun--colder climate--but they manage to grow whatever they want from the posts I've read in gardening forums.

I grew nearly everything imaginable in New England (upper Western MA, and Rhode Island). I didn't grow tropicals, but most vegetables (all lettuces, many varied tomatoes, great success with tubers, potatoes--can't think of any vegetable exceptions.

Some apple trees are better than others; never planted many fruit bearing trees, but strawberries and other berries do very well.

And an herb garden is a sure success.

You can basically grow everything here except tropical to sub tropical veggies .
All kinds of lettuce, squash, peppers, cabbage, radishes,corn, cukes, rhubarb,celery. various herbs,
tomato, etc. Fruits; apples, strawberries, pears,peaches, cherries and melons.

Coastal areas of southern and south eastern New England will have the longest growing season-
growing grapes for wine production is a growing part of agriculture here- especially in southern New England. Many new and interesting wineries have sprang up in the last 20 years producing excellent quality wines.

I would assume if you had a greenhouse large enough you could grow additional non hardy fruits and veggies in New England-

also the greenhouse could give your plants an early start (like tomato, pepper etc)

Hey I successfully grow two cold hardy fan palms in my garden here over the last winter and they survived.

Thumbs up To Skytrekker, Ontheroad,bhs119! Thank You & ??

HELLO SKYTREKKER, ONTHEROAD, BHS119!!


Thank you so much for all of the links,input,help!
I truly appreciate it! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH YOU HAVE HELPED ME!

By the way, SKYTREKKER I believe you mentioned planting grapes, and I was wondering if they end up with a lot of bugs?

And on that same note, I was wondering what have you all done to avoid the BUGS & or animals from eating your fruits & veggies? What do you use?

Anyway,once again,thanks a lot for all of the input!
