mustn't be fooled...

As February ends we get itching to plant. Seeds can germinate under the correct conditions: hours of sunlight, warmth of air, decent soil conditions.

The frost free date is a bet that shifts every year. It truly does seem to arrive earlier each year, so is it April here this year, or May? Will a freezing night sneak in and lay tender vegetables to waste? If waiting too long will the ones that prefer cool weather be unhappy and wilt in heat?

One thing is certain, night time temperatures in the 20's and above are welcome. Nights in the teens are just too cold.

But can peas go in 2 weeks from now? That is the real question!
