Last frost in late March?

A few days ago I visited neighbors who told me that it froze a couple nights earlier.  I didn’t even notice.

Today I inspected the grapes and yup, a number of leaves were brown and dead, definitely frozen.  It’s not a problem because there’s lots of new growth.  But what timing, just a few days after I pruned it froze.  Mid April it’s supposed to be safe with no more freezes. 

The first corn sprouted in the addition.   The larger grape cuttings are outside, but many smaller cuttings are in cake and strawberry plastic containers in the addition.   I’ll be happy if just 20% grow.

Hope to get to seeding some corn outside within the next few days.  I’m planning on 3 or 4 sisters plantings as described here:
