Yesterday, we set a new weather record by having the lowest recorded high temperature for May 12th… 49 degrees. The previous record was 52 degrees. Since it didn’t frost or freeze, the plants are fine, though most of them aren’t exactly going to grow and thrive under these conditions.
I am sure that the garden centers aren’t moving as many plants over Mother’s Day weekend as they had hoped. And I’m glad I’m not in charge out at the motor speedway, trying to figure out when they will have “pole day”. Yep, things could be a whole lot worse!
My new plan is to finish planting the containers tomorrow, as long as it isn’t raining. I’ll get an early start! Yes, that’s what I’ll do! And even if it is raining, I have some indoor plants that I need to tend to.
Oh, and I haven’t been out to the vegetable garden for a few days, but I would guess with all this rain and cool weather, I have a good crop of lettuce, radishes, and onions ready to be harvested! Yum, time for a salad.
