[NAFEX] Don't plant tender items just yet

Hi,

The difference may just be individual preference.  I do not want to risk the
plants being killed even at 10%.  I spend too much time working with seeds
and seedlings to risk them.

As my sage mother would ask...  You want to be right, or dead right?

Later,
Tom

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.
