I've moved from zone 8 (s.louisiana) to zone 6a (nw ar) and I just don't think ZDD is something you ever "cure". LOL. I am still planting things out too early, even though I've been told it's too early, and I just can't help myself. However, according to the locals here, it's not too early for potatoes, cole transplants, and some have even set out corn already - the optimistic ones. it's likely too late for peas but too early for southern peas. may be alright for snap beans, but i haven't gotten mine in yet. i set out about 20 strawberry plants last weekend. i hear we are expecting a light frost possibly this week, which means i will have to pull out the remay for my tomatoes and other tender things a ZDD person is likely to already have out. the okra came up but has already bitten the dust because it got too chilly for them a few nights ago.
