Would it be too late to sow "Sepp Holzer" grain? I'm located in Central NY, zone 5. . . More like zone 4 given my elevation and all the damn wind. Last frost date I believe is somewhere around the middle of October, sometime before and sometimes after given the year.

I am not familiar with different Zones, though I found this thread that is all about Sepp's grain:

( i just found out that you're supposed to plant this perennial rye in July or August.)

Based on that comment, I would say that now is the time to plant.

It is a perennial rye and typically rye is planted in the fall.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, couldn't hurt to just go with it and see what happens. Worst case I have to replant in the spring 👍👍

I have a seed package of that perennial rye, there it says plant in june.

Btw, it is not perenniell per se, you have to cut it down to keep it going.
