Canadian Frost Dates

 

For those of use who live in a climate where the number of frost free days just about approximates the number of days needed for plants to flower or vegetables to bear eatable product, it becomes essential that such plants are started indoors.  

Once they have grown to a reasonable height and your climate is frost free then they can be are hardened off and transplanted into the outdoor soil. 

Noted here is the fact that the dates given are only approximate... If you want to be extra careful, do not plant or transplant sensitive plants until 10 days after the dates given here.  For hardy plants you might watch the weather forecasts and try the last frost dates - but be careful. 

Planting too early when frost in imminent could undo all your hard work.
