[NAFEX] Don't plant tender items just yet

Here in our Zone 5b, the gov. maps show about the middle of April as the
average last frost.  The 10% day of last frost is May 1 (that means there is
a 10% chance of frost after May 1).  I looked at the long term forecast last
weekend, it looked pretty good so I took a chance and set out our tomatoes
Monday.  Weird the way zone 5's can be so different.
