Also, check the USDA's Plant Hardiness Map to find out your hardiness zone:
Interactive Map | USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

This will tell you the last average frost date for your area; plant your summer garden after that. Our last average frost date is April 15. We had such a cold winter last year, I waited a little longer last spring to plant.

BT I skin the tomatoes (don't like the skins in my salsa), but I don't seed them. If you can find them, be sure to add tomatillos. I made some excellent salsa this year using green and ripe tomatoes. I didn't skin the green tomatoes. I did not add the green tomatoes in place of the tomatillos, but in addition to them. Be sure to add fresh cilantro and lime. A shot of tequila never hurts, either.

It depends, Bucky.

The tomatoes we grow here are thin skinned, so I leave them alone. The tomatoes that Steve grew in the MUCH hotter San Fernando Valley when he lived there, were so thick they had to be peeled to be used for anything.

thanks, everyone.

i think i'm going to try a few different types.

i still haven't gotten to it as i've been staying in bed all day and barely crawling into work at night.

i'll start with a more pico de gallo skinned and diced tomatoes, then another more of smooth salsa with skinned and blended tomatoes, and another that's a combo. we'll see what we like best. i'm thinking the latter, but we'll see.

thanks again.

bt, that must be some miserable cold. Take care of yourself. Have you considered taking a sick day and staying in bed for 24 hours?

yeah, i took monday off. but i'm saving my last 2 sick days so we can go away for a weekend. i haven't been this sick since i was a kid.

but no big deal. i'll tough it out. i'm lucky that i mostly work alone at night so i'm not risking getting anyone else sick.

lol, dw is complaining about me not taking care of myself, so i put on my superman t shirt, put underwear outside my pants, and tie a towel around my neck and stand with my fists on my hips, saying, "i'll be fine, lois".

Make sure your wife puts down a pillow for you and covers you with a blanket.
