Gee, just the thing for tomatoes, beans, summer squash and peppers, huh?
Oh, but don’t get me started on how the weeds don’t care about the weather. *smile*
I did plant the tomatoes anyway covering them with row cover and lining the beds with bottles filled with water to try and capture whatever warmth the feeble bit of sun we’re getting might provide. They had grown so leggy and I had been moving them around so much that I actually snapped one off before I decided I was planting no matter what the weather was doing.
I know some of you had much better success hardening off your seedlings and some in the south are already getting tomato blossoms or baby tomatoes. But for us up north, it’s the same “what can we do to hurry them along” game we play every year…
I’m looking forward to seeing all the garden progress!
