planting time

Asked March 1, 2017, 3:49 PM EST

Due to the continued warm weather, will this cause us to move up the planting date by a week or two?

In general planting dates are about the same. We could still have weeks of temperatures dipping below freezing. You did not mention what you are planting. If you are referring to a vegetable garden or small fruits you can get some garden chores done like weeding, pruning, and improving the soil. If you like to experiment you can sow some early season cool season vegetables. They will have to be protected from cold temperatures. You may need to replant.
