What we’re planting in April

There is of course always a risk of frost until the last frost date of April 15 in this area.  There is always a risk after that too, but it decreases significantly.  By mid may there’s almost no chance of frost.  So if you plant warm weather plants be ready to protect them on a cold night.  This year I’m betting on no more frosts, but you never know

  1. I’m in a frost free zone now, but for years I’d get excited about spring, plant seeds out in beautiful, sunny, late March and a frost would hit. Wait til Mother’s Day, they said, but I was impatient. Finally one year I planted tomatoes in March and watched them struggle. Then I planted MORE in May. The ones I planted in May quickly excelled beyond the ones I’d gotten in the ground earlier. 😉

    • That’s good info. I usually don’t have a problem with planting too early because I keep thinking I need to get these planted, I need to get these planted and then I get busy and don’t get planting until May or June lol.
