2016 While the weather has been somewhat cool with cold nights the
first week of May, unusual it is not. What is unusual is that most
areas here have not experienced a severe frost which may be creating a sense
of “planting” security for more inexperienced gardeners. Normally, the
last for sure frost free date for northern Ohio is
May 30th which about 2 weeks earlier for southern Ohio.
While seeds and cold tolerant vegetable plants such as broccoli and
cauliflower should go in now, tomatoes and peppers are better planted
at least after the middle of May.
