I just started peppers and eggplant yesterday. I will probably start my tomatoes this
coming Sunday.

Yes, we are right here next to the water so it's milder. I often don't get my first frost until close to Christmas, but this last fall I think it was mid-November. Spring and Fall are so unpredictable here.

Here in Floyd at 2,600 feet elevation our first frost can come as late as late May, but I always plan on planting in mid-May if the 10 day forecast shows no frost threats. Some old timers wait until June 1st, but I'll take my chances as I usually take a long vacation right after the crops are in and the garden is in "grow mode".
