Frost Dates Calculator
« on: April 11, 2016, 09:59:49 am »
I came across this and thought I would share.  Click on your state and enter your zip code to find out last frost, first frost and average number of frost free days.  I think it's off a little, but it's a useful device to help plan your garden.

 Thanks for the chart, but it was wrong for around here, for we have plenty of frost after the 11 of march it gave, in fact we have had 3 since than this year.
