Last year Spring came about a month early with flowers blooming a month earlier than usual. I don't know if its too early to tell, but has anyone heard if we are supposed to get an early Spring this year?

I haven't heard the official news from anyone but it looks that way to me. And again a dry spring so far. I'm trying to figure out how far to set forward my planting so my tomatoes don't burn up and everything else.

RE: Early Spring?

winter seems to be really dragging on here in NW IL. not at all like last year. we'll see.

RE: Early Spring?

Last year the last frost occurred in mid-April. We're supposed to have 70 degree temps and no rain by Thursday in SC Kansas. And then it is supposed to be in the lower 60's the last week of March. However, that doesn't mean there can't be a late frost during the first week in May. The weather is just so unpredictable here in KS.
