A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Dave’s Garden has a great tool you can use to enter your zip code and receive your area’s last/first frost dates.

Not only that, but it will provide local “detailed station data” highlighting the percentage of likelihood of receiving frost at particular dates in your immediate area.  The result summary will also tell you when you are virtually guaranteed to/not to receive frost.  For example, a search for Round Rock, Texas came up with the following summary:

My results: "You are almost guaranteed that you will not get frost from March 30 through October 31."

With that information in mind, you can sow seeds indoors according to the seed packet directions and have them ready to go when Mother Nature is ready!


Comments on: "When is your last freeze?" (4)

  1. Ack! I’m already late! My last freeze date is two weeks earlier than yours. You must live north of me.

  2. Uhh, yeeeeah…read the name of the blog, d’oh! ADHD aside, I think it’s interesting that you’re so close yet your freeze date is two full weeks after my zip’s.

      🙂 That IS interesting, two whole weeks?! There’s probably 30 miles between us. Weird.
