Final freeze? oh pleeze, oh pleeze!
(5/19) Tuesday a.m.
It got down to 32F last night. But this morning the birdbath is free of icebergs and all shipping lanes are open! There was frost, but not as heavy as Monday morning. Hopefully this is winter's final hurrah and I can now enjoy playing in the garden without having to check the weather channel every hour for updates.
Let the garden games begin!
(5/18) Monday a.m.
It got down to 29F here and the birdbath is frozen solid! (I'm beginning to understand what the "F" after the temperature is really for! ;-D )
One more night of temps like this and then I should be able to start planting out! Woo hoo!
They forcast for 38F tonight. Which means in my neck of the woods it will get down to 29-30 and I expect a freeze. Then maybe frost again Monday night. But then on Tuesday....
We're supposed to be out of the weather woods and looking good! I'll keep all my seedlings and starts under wraps for 2 more nights and then easing up on the nightly blanket ritual.
Meanwhile, check out these two posts: One with updates on my great tomato experiment and one on yet ANOTHER new flower bed.
More soon when all the ice is gone... ;-D
