Heard this on the news the other day....
We were cautioned to remember PIP and PIG
PIP - around Mother's Day
Plant in Pot
PIG - after Memorial Day
Plant in Ground
The average frost dates in Colorado vary, mostly due to elevation. I found this nifty map online. It is an interactive "Last Frost" map for Colorado. Other states are available at http://www.plantmaps.com
We live in the dark brown zone. We'll wait until after Memorial Day to put anything, except the most frost-tolerant veggies, in the ground!
Although, I must remind myself that this is Colorado...
where anything can happen!
We've had snow flurries in June.
We had a hard frost as late as June 12th.
We had inches of hail in June
... one never knows!!
