This means that if warm season veggies are planted now, and we get a very cold night, the plants will be damaged if not killed. Also, early-season tomatoes are at higher risk of insect and disease damage long before they set their first fruit. Now, if we have an oddly warm and dry spring, your gamble may pay off.
As for me, I am dying to get things planted as well, but I am not. I NEVER plant my tomatoes in the ground before the beginning of March if this is only done with protection like a Wall of Water or in a greenhouse. Yet I still plant the majority of my tomatoes in early to mid-April.
I’d love to hear from you what will you do? Gamble on the early season, or will you plant? Leave your feedback in the comments!
