Gardeners watch out, record temps could be deceptive

Warm temperatures this month broke records in the Midwest, but experts warn farmers and gardeners to be cautious about planting early.
The Midwestern Regional Climate Center says the possibility of a freeze in April remains high.
Experts admit it's a guessing game to predict the date of the last spring freeze.
There's still a possibility for a 32-degree freeze or even a 28-degree "hard" freeze, which could kill plants.
If your green thumb can't wait, you could consider starting plants in pots that can be easily moved indoors should temperatures drop.
