Freeze or no freeze?

Spring is here, but it snowed last week! This is the time of year that gardeners are itching to get dirt under their fingernails. But, do we just need to be patient?

If you haven't already planted your seeds indoors, now is the time. The usual time to start your seeds indoors is 4-12 weeks before the last spring frost. I averaged locations across the Salt Lake Valley and determined April 21st to be the last spring frost, but with our weather who knows! For detailed information about the last spring frost date in your area visit Utah State University's Utah Freeze Dates.

If you are wondering when you can get your plants into the ground, check out this great publication by USU Extension - Vegetable Planting Times.

Do you have any tried and true tips for when to start seeds/when to plant? Leave a comment!
