Planting dates...a little wiggle room?

Question about South Mississippi Gardening: as you are aware, the winter lingered a little longer in our area. I am just now getting to work on our garden. Most dates for our area show that many spring planted veggies should be planted by April. Should I plant this week and hope/pray for the best and see what happens? I know many veggies are borderline: cucumbers, eggplant, peppers. I can plant okra, sweet potatoes now. Should I wait for July and August dates for everything else? We do have drip irrigation as well. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you!

Go ahead and plant. You will be fine. Better late then never.

I ran into the same thing, so instead of trying to start things froms seeds, I just went to several nurseries and bought established plants to put out. (I just stored my seeds up in the fridge for next year...)
