Wordless Wednesday: Last Frost of the Season?

by Texas Homesteader 

Killing frost keeps me from planting my garden just yet. #TexasHomesteader

In our area of NE Texas it’s generally recommended not to plant the veggie garden until Easter or after – this is why!  Hopefully this is the last frost of the season, I’ll be planting soon.

    What a beautiful picture! It’s so funny to compare different areas of the country – we can’t plant ANYTHING until after Memorial day, we always have one last good frost before than and I’m always sorry if I don’t listen to that rule! 🙂 Thanks for linking up at #HappinessIsHomemade this week!

      I find it interesting to compare to other planting times across the country as well Katie. There are pros & cons with each region and planting zone for sure. I love the early planting time in zone 8 but of course the heat & humidity of our typical summers makes that early planting time a necessity. ~TxH~

    Thanks so much for sharing this with the Let’s Get Real party. We are probably 6-8 weeks away from last frost. Can’t wait to plant though.

    Even as far north as we are, Easter week is my traditional seed planting week. I’ll wait a bit longer for my seedlings that I’ll buy at the nursery. My garden is so small I don’t try starting them on my own. – Margy

    We had 2 nights of frost and my broccoli and cabbage plants are in the ground. They got a little frost on the leaves, but will come back. I should have covered them. The recommendation is not to plant here until the middle of April here in Virginia. I try to get a head start over the bugs so always push it a little. I would like to try a low tunnel this fall and maybe use for early spring plants too. The peas and turnips didn’t have any frost damage.

    Your so lucky. Here in SW Michigan we wait until Memorial weekend to safely plant. We can plant cool weather plants after May 5th (our average last frost day) but it seems soooo long from now:(

    with the frost; makes for a rather pretty photo
    We didn’t receive no frost but did get rather chilly here and did cover my tomato plant just in case.

      Gotta agree with ya there Colleen – I thought it was a pretty photo. AND a reminder that in our area, frost can hit before Easter no matter how warm & sunny it’s been in the past several days! LOL ~TxH~
