Memorial Day is the official planting time here in Vermont. Of course, Memorial Day used to be May 30th when it could be more safely assumed that the season's last frost had occurred. Now that they've gone to the three day weekend approach to so many holidays, Memorial Day fell on the 25th. Most of the neighbors were out planting just the same. I'm impatient enough to have put in three tomato plants, a cucumber hill, basil, and parsley. The lettuce is already sprouting up from seed. So guess what--frost and freeze warnings out for tonight.
