Ouch!Well let me tell you about the weather here in Vermont! Last night and today, May 8-9, this is what it looks like. (It's not melting today.) :

This is the 3rd cold spring in a row now with temperatures so low that nothing germinates. Even my lettuce (a cold weather crop) planted in containers on my front porch failed to sprout this year. Last summer a lot of the nurseries and organic farms in my area had to re-plant a lot of their crops for the same reason. I have officially given up on starting plants from seed in containers early. From this point onward I am planting everything outside on June 1st and seeing what has time to grow and what doesn't. Along with the cold spring weather, our first frosts seem to be coming later, so probably all will be well with my new gardening plan.
