For those who have been having a bit of envy over our gardening weather, every area has its problems. This past Wednesday morning, about mid-morning, it was 35º. Here’s part of our forecast for next week
When the night temps get into the mid-70’s, tomatoes stop producing. When the day temps get into the mid 90’s potatoes die off. This is the reason we were so anxious to get things planted as soon as we could.
These temps won’t stay but it won’t be long til they will be here to stay.
Sometimes I wonder whether it’s even worth the effort to try to garden in a climate like this – but I know I will keep on gardening. It’s just pretty frustrating to have those late frosts and now temps nearing 100 degrees in mid-April.
