Simple garden techniques described in details so anyone can easily follow through on their end while sharing ideas and pictures on how the garden is progressing through out the year.
You really didn't think Mother Nature wasn't going to hand us something, did you??? She is quite temperamental! We are supposed to get down to the mid-upper 30's at night and a chance of snow flurries on Tuesday. Happy Spring!!
actually i thought that we already had our surprise when 23 degree frost hit us and demolished half of my brassicas and radishes. peas are still recovering and growing too slow for their speed :( the new group that was planted 3 weeks after first is taller than them!
Jenny, I feel your pain! After a week of morning frosts I'm surpised Mother Nature didn't throw that one at me. Instead I got the "tree peony rain". As soon as the tree peony is in full flower we get a deluge that destroys the blooms. At least I managed to get one day of enjoyment from it.
I guess I'm an optimist - looking forward to the warm weather and only sprinklers at night. I feel bad for your peony - it's such a pretty flower and too bad rain knocked it all down. It's raining out here since last night and all my tulips are all beat up. :(
Oh no! I really felt like getting some of my warm weather seedlings out this week, being lulled into a false sense of security by the warm weather. I did plant some, but I know better. It could be 80 today but 30 a few nights from now. Usually I'm safe after the 25th, but sometimes in past years we've had to rush out and cover the plants.
Looks like Mother Nature is just being very twitchy this year and keeps throwing tantrums. Oh well, I'll probably lose all those tomatoes that are in the ground already (wasn't counting on them anyway) but hope nothing else gets lost. Thankfully I'm yet to plant my beans or squashes so no loss there. Cold-hardy greens should be ok even in a snow.
We are even supposed to hit low 40's on Monday and Tuesday. Crazy weather!
this system is going to hit entire east coast :( hope everything in your garden stays safe.
