remember this - seeds (almost any of them) like to sprout in 85 degree soil. Shove a thermometer in the ground and watch it - save a fortune in rotten seeds. :)

suppose what end of this state you are in, but up here in the Fredericksburg area, we can still get snow and freezing weather. I would wait for at least 2 weeks.

the rule of thumb here in my part of Texas is to not plant before Good Friday. Every year I ever tried to sneak something in it got frost kill.
