Hello Gardeners

I'm having a lot of trouble finding the average last frost date for where I live.
Does anybody know where I could find out?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you!

Best I can figure, our average last frost is either May 3 or May 11.
Which means I need to begin starting plants in March.

I don't wanna wait that long!

May 15th for us! But after gardening here a few years I wait until June for anything delicate :? (then again, my garden is REALLY exposed to the elements)

It is hard for me to imagine waiting to plant frost tolerant plants until June!

My growing season begins in February with cold weather stuff and warm weather stuff in March/April. By June, it is already 32°C daily and some plants begin to struggle in the heat.
