RE: website


Hmmmm.  Every time I get anxious and plant before mid-may, I end up sorry I
did.  And the some garden clubs in the area also suggest mid-may as a safe
time to plant "after all danger of frost."  Not too long after we moved to
the greater Dayton area, it snowed Easter weekend, a wet, heavy snow that
caused massive damage.  Perhaps I'm just not the risk taker I thought I was,
either.

Thanks for the info!

Blessings,

Bonnie

According to my references (never lived in that area, just Denver) the 
mean date of last frost is 17 April in both Indianapolis and Columbus. 
Guess the key is "mean", not the last recorded frost ever.
