Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Last snow? And frost dates.

I have to get this in my records... yesterday - March 30 - was (hopefully) our last snow.


We had a pretty hard frost last nite. We'll see how this goes.

Last year we had a hard frost on April 21. The year before our last frost was on March 27th. According to this site our last frost will be May 20.  The Old Farmer's Almanac put our last frost at May 5. It's a good reminder that we are not out of the fire yet - and that the "last frost date" is pretty variable.

But we might hit 70* tomorrow so here's hoping that we are going to head directly into spring and a long long growing season.

Happy Monday everyone!

We are having the same struggles! 70 one day and hard freeze and snow the next! My poor cold frame plants don't know what to think!!
