Depends a lot on your location. In a southern latitude of 30 degrees a 5% slope will only decrease insolation by about 2%. In a more northern location of 45 degrees latitude it'll decrease by about 10%. That's enough to delay your spring planting by 2-3 weeks in an area with an already short growing season.
