[NAFEX] Don't plant tender items just yet

Hello,

My rule of thumb for tender plant set out is Memorial Day in zone 5.

I would never think about it this early.

Master Gardeners in Minnesota have had an average planting date of May 28
for tender plant, direct seeding in past trials.

Later,
Tom

    The weather here in Minnesota is so nice...............70's during the 
day and I was tempted to set my tomato plants out in the garden.  Before 
doing so, I checked the weather in Churchill, Ontario which is just a few 
hundred miles to the North.  A high of 31 F is predicted for today.

That cold weather will drift south just as soon as the jet stream changes:
