when is it safe to plant tomatoes?
I'm still trying to get used to planting in zone 6 vs. my previous home in zone 9. it's definitely a change in planting times, especially since we only had frost maybe once or twice a year, if that, in my old so. calif. home!
anyway, when is it safe to plant tomatoes? do I really need to wait until mid-may? I'm so tempted to plant now, but don't want the plants to be ruined and have slow growth from the cold ground. They had nice 2-gal tomato plants at one nursery we visited yesterday and I'd love to take advantage if it wouldn't be a mistake.
I don't have a greenhouse setup yet since we just moved into our newly built house. I will have a greenhouse next year, but not just yet...
