The last wave of ground frost may come even in May so pro gardeners advise to plant vulnerable greens from mid May. Last year I picked very few cherries because spring frost had killed blooming flowers on trees.
This year I see mine have survived very well but in other regions - not. After the drought, ground frosts are going to negatively influence farmers` income.

There are special names for those cold days with ground frost. Cold Gardeners are on 12, 13 and 14 May while 15 May is called Cold Sophie.
Today it has been raining all day, just like yesterday and a few days ago. Great, the ground is slowly getting soaked but still only the initial layer of it. To get deeper, the rain should continue for a few days more.
Rains are good for some veg and bad for others. E.g. tomatoes don`t like damp conditions, they can easily get diseases.
