Planting Time

This is the date when the probabilities of a Spring frost killing your young vegetable, be it a seed or a transplant, are small. It is not a guarantee but a probability calculation. But mother nature plays by her own rules, so you must factor-in the current weather conditions in your area when deciding weather or not to plant at the planting time or delay it a bit. In general, we recommend that you delay the planting time if the weather is harsh, especially if it is very wet, as spring rains can drown a young seedling quite easily. Cold, wet weather tends to be disastrous for young plants, so wait if you can until the weather moderates somewhat before taking the plunge into the garden.

All of the planting times that we use are for our local area, in Wisconsin. Your planting times could be quite different; consult your local county agent or university extension for planting times in your area. Because of global warming however, these times can change, so stay informed by recording last frost dates in spring, first frost dates in fall, etc.
