The warm weather may be gone, but that does not mean that the gardening season is over. You can continue to plant in this hardiness zone until the ground is frozen solid. Frost and cold temperatures do not mean the ground is frozen. Check soil temperatures in your area, as long as soil temperatures are above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, you are good to grow!
