The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

The USDA released the updated Plant Hardiness Zone Map earlier this week.  The map reflects a progressive warming trend.

Looks like we moved from zone 5b to 6a. Be sure to check the map and see what zone you are in now.

    Jenny I'm surprised they moved your area up. Some things I think I will be able to start earlier, but there is other vegetables I'm not so sure about. Trial and error as well as time will tell.
