Watch out for the Frost...

I have heard of many people starting their gardens in North Branch, Minnesota.

Way to early.

We can get frost on average until about the 21st and has been as late as the 3 of June.

Planting the root plants is ok, but if you want to replace started plants then go ahead and plant out side.

If yo want to be safe, wait a couple of weeks

William Feela I've seen snow on my birthday on May 16th several times.

I sure hope we don't see any frost or snow. I have tomatoes on the vine that wouldn't like that.

Way to early for planing delicate plants like tomato's.  Root plants ok as you said

I planted my tomatoe plants a little early this year.  I put them in the ground the last of March.  I watched the weather forcasts however, and we didn't get frost in April.  I think I'm home free here in Sacramento.  My tomatoes are huge already, and growing out of their cages.  There are tons of green tomatoes and blossoms!

I agree Bill, about the only thing growing in my garden so far is a good crop of grass.

Hi William.  Great advice for Minnesota.  Not something we worry about down here, thankfully.
