It’s time to plant your garden! Or is it? Gardening at Laramie’s high altitude certainly presents some challenges, including timing when you put your plants in the ground.

While most areas of the Midwest can count on the last frost taking place sometime in April or May, Laramie will usually have some frosty mornings into the beginning of June. This means most of Laramie’s gardens begin indoors during early spring and then are put in the ground once the weather warms up.

The trick is waiting long enough to make sure your plants don’t frost, but still getting them in the ground early enough for you to be able to harvest them before the first frost in the fall. Just when is that magical time when you plant your garden in Laramie? Let us know in the survey below.
