Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A full three weeks after what I thought was the 'last' frost, BANG! here it comes again. However, it would be an abnormal spring in our area if this DIDN'T happen; seems to EVERY year. Still, those surprise frosts usually come in late April. Just as well I'm late getting tender crops planted this year! Chickens are snug inside their little coop; building of the outdoor run is proceeding slowly but it'll get done one of these days...

Thanks, Shirley, I don't think it did, but I'm going to watch the seedlings I have in pots on the deck, which include tomatoes, peppers, and melons. For now they look OK.

When I lived in Minnesota, we used to wait until after Memorial Day. Here, last frost is usually mid-April, usually considered safe to plant by the last week of that month. But, one thing I've learned from living in NC, is that the weather is always full of surprises! (Some anomalies occur so regularly that they don't surprise me at all any more. Would surprise me if they DIDN'T happen.)

Oh hi, Larry, you slipped in while I was typing. The weather we're having now is more typical of what YOU should be getting!

Yep, granddad always said plant potatoes
on Good Friday and the rest after
Mother's day. We came close to frost
the last two nights here.

I thought that was your little barn and you
had frost! So much for the seed lady's theory!
She always gave the third grade kids at
school seeds and told them not to plant
them until after Mothers Day as no chance
of frost. Hope it was not a hard enough
frost to kill tender vegetation.
