A Hardcore Gardener's Spring Planting Chart

It seems that every chart I come across lists when you can plant different vegetables in alphabetical order.  Frequently, though, what I want to know is what can I get away with planting now?  For others like me, here is that chart.  Unfortunately for you, I'm only figuring out things I'm planning on planting and I'm only going by my expected last frost date, which I'm guesstimating to be mid-May.  I may adjust the actual dates I plant as we get into May, if it looks like that may not be accurate.  I'm drawing on a number of sources for these and sometimes the sources disagree, so I'm using my best guesses as well as setting dates I'm most likely to get a chance to do it, which for me means weekdays.
