Dear list,
  What?  Planting peas near Boston on St. Pattie's Day?  (before the 
traditional pub crawl I am assuming)  Both my parents were Yankees and 
they always told me "never plant before Memorial Day".  Anyone else 
concur?  They also used to say, "corn knee high by the 4th of July"...

  How about the greater DC area list members?  When are you all planning 
garden plantings to avoid last frosts?
