Mothers Day – Time to Plant

There’s a saying here in the western North Carolina mountains that you should plant your frost-sensitive crops around Mothers Day. As it turns out, that’s usually a pretty good estimate of the last frost date. This year, it had been so warm that I cheated and put my plants in the ground a week early (April 30th).
