What We Are Planting
We put lettuce in the garden outside about a week ago and will have to cover it and hope for the best with the shot of cold air coming tonight and tomorrow night. If you have things you want to plant or that you have already put outside, you will want to protect them or bring them in. We have decided to put everything on hold for a few more days. We will have lots of work just keeping things from freezing and hope it is the last time we have to worry about it.
We have nice snap pea starts in the hoophouse. We had wanted to put them out since they are very hardy, but as the forecast predicts lower and lower temperatures for the first two nights of this week, we decided the better part of valor was to go ahead and keep them in the protection of the hoophouse. That goes for our cilantro, parsley, dill, snapdragons, dianthus and lisianthus as well. The time will come and it won’t be much longer, but there is just no point in rushing the season when it doesn’t wish to be rushed!
We have a lovely section of carrots up and growing in the garden and we know from experience that they should be just fine. We also have beautiful garlic growing that doesn’t mind a cold snap. But we DO mind a cold snap! We were beginning to get used to warm days with the sun warming us as we began to work outside. In fact, last week I wrote that there was nothing stopping us now! Well, I was wrong. Mother nature rules. I know, soon we will be complaining of the heat! Stay warm.
