I second Chris H.'s advice about our own micro-climates being unique.
Here in Zone 3, I HAVE to plant before mid-August to make sure roots
are anchored before the first hard frost which can decimate any plant
and usually kill our tomatoes before they get red (some years).
But our case in the Northern White Mountains is so singular that we
are an anomaly - but we still garden and with success!
Still in Siberian bloom (what a fine year),
