What crops? Are you adding heat? How big of a tunnel? You will not find any absolute dates, anywhere. In Coleman's books, you will find some time ranges that you could adjust your your location.

I'm involved with the "NRCS" High Tunnel Program and have gotten alot of info on "Michigan State University Hoophouse Website". Our farm hovers between a z4b and z5a. There is planting date charts for planting 3 seasons on MSU websit. I adjusted it 2/3 wks later for my location. There are some other university websites/links listed for hoophouse planting than may be helpful on the MSU site..
