March Madness by Sue@Lmu
A great story from transplanting tomatoes Wednesday. One member Beth transplanted leggy tomatoes almost to their leaves in the soil. I thought oh dear those might be too deep. But I decided I’m going to just see what happens maybe it’s good. I was blown away even the next morning when they had grown at least a quarter inch over night. They are growing that and more everyday with great leaf development. Live, Learn and Experiment.
What a month we’ve been in the teens and the 70’s. We’ve got more done than I ever remember in March. Some gardeners planted spring things in their beds in late February and early March they survived the teens and are looking fabulous after 70’s and rains this week. Bill’s plowed all our home gardeners beds and they are planting at least their potatoes. We’ve had great turnouts for meetings and workdays. The greenhouse is bursting with vegetables and pollinator flowers. We just hope now for no more teen temperatures. Speaking of temperatures we are having fun watching the soil temps with our new soil thermometer. It was 60 in gardens, raised beds and high tunnels Monday night. The potatoes should love that and pop soon. Oh and we are still enjoying kale and broccoli from the fall garden.
Happy April Everybody!
