I do a lot of my stuff right before a HARD freeze.
Get it tune with your weather patterns on the weather channel or weather bug.
Examine you average frost dates and last frost dates.
And after a few cycles (years) you will have a good understanding of your pattern.

Make mental note in detail how the frost settles around your house and formulate a plan when your plants will have to be lifted. This is important.

For instance plants close to a home (a huge heatsink) will not get frost while the rest of the yard will be hit.

Know your weather.

Some folks like to do it sooner.
You may run a shovel around your plants now (root pruning)and lift your plants out at the last moment....I do that with a few of my plants.

Best of all have fun figuring it all out....
