More of us simply count the number of weeks until spring. Remember, both the last expected frost date and the weeks required to coax your seeds into seedlings are approximations. One just never knows, do one? But itís a start. If you know when the last frost is expected and the seed packet tells you how many weeks prior to that date to start those seeds, you can just grab a calender and count backwards. (I didnít say it was calculus.) Here are some dates and times to help get you started. Set up your own calender and your seedlings will be ready for those first warm days.
