What do seasoned Medford gardeners say? This is only my second year here, but I gardened in the Willamette Valley in the past. Last year I only planted a few tomatoes, peppers & cucumbers in early May, and we had frost about 1 wk. after I planted them. Most of them made it. I live in town, SE Med.

Welcome to the forum :)

Don't plant tomatoes out without protection until it's a minimum of 10c/50f. They stall and stop growing below that temperature.

Our last frost date here is considered May 24 but we've had light frosts after that the odd year. Regardless, I never plant mine until a week into June unless we're in a real hot spell in which case earlier in June. It's all about soil temps to me that matters the most and my plants always catch up and pass others that folks have planted earlier in cool soils.
