Should I Plant early?

Asked March 8, 2016, 2:15 PM EST

Is it okay to plant lettuce outside this weekend, March 12th? I'm looking at the 10 forecast and it looks like spring has come early. If I get it wrong can i just cover them with a trap of we get a last frost.

I doubt if the soil is warm enough yet for seed to germinate. Please check this information from the University of Alabama. http://www.aces.edu/pubs/docs/A/ANR-1061/ANR-1061.pdf
