Impact of Climate Change on Gardens

New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food (January 5, 2009)

Peas grown on Bouldervale Farm, Grantham Much information how climate change may impact your garden and crops can be found through the Boston Area Climate Experiment at www.ecosystems.umb.edu/bace.html report.

The hardiness zone from the National Arbor Day foundation (www.arborday.org/treeinfo/zonelookup.cfm) shows much of the Northeast a zone warmer and the average growing season has increased in the Northeast by eight days between 1900 and 2001 are just two bits of information that gardeners and farmers might be interested in from the report. Precipitation and pests are also discussed in the Boston report.
