When is the 100th day when you can plant garden vegetables & they won't get frost bite and will continue growing? I live in Salyersville KY 'Eastern KY'. Thank You, Stephanie D

We have a vegetable planting guide here:
Just enter your city and state or zip code and it will show your average frost free dates. But remember, these are just averages.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I'm not sure what you mean by 100th day.

This link (under 'tools and apps') will help you find the proper planting time for your area.

Some schools have "100th Day" projects. Is you interest in planting dates part of a similar project?

I agree that you should check the planting calendar here on NGA but there could be a late freeze so keep an eye on the weather and be prepared to protect your plants.
