Are We Beyond The Last Frost Of Winter?

Texas A&M Agrilife

Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman says long-range forecasts he has seen say that we're unlikely to see temperatures under 40 degrees for many days, which would put us past the average last freeze date of March 20.  Wayne says the snow that fell during the extreme cold weather in mid-February actually was a good thing for plants and gardeners, providing a layer of insulation against the temperatures that fell below 0.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
