I see that annuals are already out in gardening stores. Can they be planted now? It’s only May 1st.

The average last frost date for Albany is May 2nd and later for the surrounding hills.   There is no frost in the forecast right now either.  Planting now would be a bit of a gamble so be prepared to cover up.  Tomatoes, pepper eggplant and other “tropical” veggies don’t like lows below 50° so they want to go in the week after Mother’s Day or even later in May depending on what the forecast looks like then.  I live in the hills at about 750′ elevation so mine will go in the week before Memorial Day.
