Local frost dates

According to the Old Farmers Alamanac, the last frost date in my area this year is April 12, and the first frost date is October 25.

In other words, I need to get busy planting! I might put in some kale, lettuce and arugula this weekend. We’ll probably wait until early May to plant pepper starts and other warm-season crops.

In past years, I’ve carefully made a calendar, but time has gotten away from me this year – it may be the year of the “go with the flow” garden.
