To Plant or Not To Plant?

Can we plant our annuals, tropicals and vegetable plants now?
Well.... You may plant but you will need to keep an eye on the out side temps at night. Many of these plants are used to at least 60 degrees and some of those cool night temps may nip the sensitive plants or slow growth. If you are willing to bring your plants in at night, then by all means enjoy the pots and hanging baskets now. We are suggesting that people wait until after the 15th at least to plant veggies. Most people say Memorial day is veggie planting day. If you plant your tomatoes later they are more resistant to blossom end rot and other disease. They are sensitive and would need to be covered for sure.
Better safe than sorry? I guess that is for you to decide how much work you are willing to do to enjoy those early blooms.
