A FROST ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 AM EDT THURSDAY.
SKIES WILL BE CLEAR OVERNIGHT AND WINDS WILL BE LIGHT. BY DAYBREAK TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE IN THE MID 30S… WITH WIDESPREAD AREAS OF FROST.
A FROST ADVISORY IS ISSUED WHEN FROST IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP DURING THE GROWING SEASON. THOSE WITH AGRICULTURAL INTERESTS IN THE WARNED AREA ARE ADVISED TO HARVEST OR PROTECT TENDER VEGETATION. ALSO… POTTED PLANTS NORMALLY LEFT OUTDOORS SHOULD BE COVERED OR BROUGHT INSIDE AWAY FROM THE COLD.
Everything in the coldframe is doing pretty well, even the peppers are finally starting to sprout. And the days have been pretty nice and tempting… making me think, maybe I could start planting beans and peas, maybe a few other things, but tonight is a warning. Last night was cold as well.
No… just have to wait another week or so. The tulips are just starting to really bloom nicely and the big mature lilacs are just starting to bloom. My new lilacs close to the moby are still not blooming. It’s just a little early to really start planting outdoors still.
That’s fine… Maggie’s birthday is tomorrow and we’ve got a few projects still on the books to finish up. Jessy is done with her classes tomorrow and that will be lovely! Summer break for her. Maggie will be done in one more month with her K12 experience and then we’ll be going back to traditional homeschooling. (Long story… but it’s the right move for us!) A nice settled life is coming back for a few months and we’re really looking forward to a few less schedules to have to jog about. Our business slows down a bit in the summer, at least for May and June, and that’s nice really. Gives us time to work on the garden and to get some fun in. Work on a few new products for sale in the late summer and to get things nice and caught up.
In Toledo here… last known frost date is May 15th. But most folks feel safe around that first full week of May. For me, I know as soon as the Mother’s Day sale at the Botanical Gardens is here.. it’s time to start planting! May 6-8th… This year I’m going to be looking at more iris and herbs! That’s my plan. So frost away Mother Nature! Your days of cold are limited…Pin It
