Why folks in WNC say “don’t plant before Mother’s Day”

It has been such a lovely early spring with way-above-average temps.  I got lulled into thinking we wouldn’t have any more sub 32 nights.  Mmh-huh.

Oh yep, I’ve already planted 3 tomato starts.  Headed to basement to get hoops and plastic to cover that part of the bed.  Also need to get out sheets to cover our big Japanese maple.
