I’ve been watching the soil-temperature data (from an NT server run by the Government of Manitoba…) and with the sunny hot day we had yesterday, I have determined to plant the garden. There’s only one day of mild freezing in the longterm forecast. Sprinklers can protect the garden from that. There will be a few days of cloudy damp weather starting today so the bedding plants will be comfortable. I’ve had them sitting out on the patio for a week and most are happy… As well, I will start planting the big seeds, peas and corn. I have a few baby carrots left over happily sprouting in the crisper to go as well.
It’s always exciting to get the garden in. This is the day. Seize it. 😉
