Don’t have any pictures but I have a few neighbors that always start the first week of April. It takes a little longer to emerge but they are up. I believe they are group 3’s that were planted. Think it took about 3 weeks for them to emerge. I always wait and plant in may. Seems they jump out of the ground and have more vigor with being introduced in warmer soils. With planting early, you get a bigger plant (if Mother Nature allows it) but if you miss that one crucial rain it’ll be a total bust. Planting later gives you a smaller plant, thus you have more of a chance of getting some yield compared to a larger plant. Hope that makes sense.
