My average last frost date of the year is April 14th. That means there is still a 50/50 chance that I could get another frost on that date. A week later is my 10% chance date.
This year has been different. We haven’t had a frost for about two weeks now, since late March. The coldest night in next week’s forecast is Thursday morning, which is now slated to dip down to 36 degrees. Everything I have out in the garden can take a little touch of frost.
I have out broccoli, lettuce, strawberries, onions, sugar snap peas and carrots.
Every other plant will wait in the little greenhouse until after April 14th and any forecast of frost…just a little insurance.
