Spring in Central Oregon

It was a pepper
This was a tomato
  It is a hard lesson, spring comes late in Central Oregon.  I was told many years ago not to plant tender annuals until the 2nd week of June.  There are some years even that is too early.  At our elevation on this side of the mountains the temperatures can drop quickly to below freezing.  This was a June 6th with a low about 25 degrees.  That would have been hard to protect even with row covers.
