I'm on the edge of zone 6/7, so I act like we're in 6 as things can be unpredictable and can go either way, such as last frost. I love that last frost Victory site, by the way, and bookmarked it. It didn't list a city near me but North of me the last frost date was 5/3.
That's actually about right because for most of my area, we use a rule of thumb of Mother's Day, or if you want to be super safe because of what's in the Alamanac on a given year, then May 15. So Mother's Day falls on May 9 this year, making 5/3 a pretty accurate last frost prediction, I think.
Speaking of Mother's Day, is everyone ready for the "three big dates" next week?
Mar 14 - daylight savings time
Mar 17 - St. Patrick's day
Mar 20 - first day of Spring!!!
Also Palm Sunday is Mar 28, and the first day of Passover is Mar 30.
And then we'll only have 9 months of the year left.
