When to transplant spring seedlings
I'm extremely picky about
transplanting weather at this time of year. Sure, I prefer to pick an
overcast day with rain on the horizon, but I also aim for a day when
there will be no frosts for at least a week. The cabbage I set out a few
weeks ago and the broccoli and onions I transplanted Monday can all
handle light freezes once they're established but transplant stress +
freeze = unhappy seedlings. Thus waiting until the perfect day comes around, even if it doesn't match the planting date on my calendar.
