C’mon warm weather

Just like everyone else, I’m going to comment on how cold it is.
Yes, yes, I know, it is colder in Maine, and Antarctica, and wherever else. But we’re not in those places. We’re in Delaware, so we can complain about the cold.
Fortunately, this cold is short-lived and a freakishly warm warm-spell is coming.
Freakish or not, we’ll take it.
We’ve got 500 tomato seedlings that are going to need to go in the ground by March.
And that means that most of the plants in the newest tunnel will need to be harvested by then.
So we’re not going to turn down Mother Nature’s help in speeding the growing along.
Not that it’s a competition or anything, but Ruth wanted to make sure you remember that there will be 800 snapdragons getting planted in March as well.
AND that the snapdragons will probably start flowering a week before the tomatoes are ready to pick (middle and end of May, respectively). Weather, pests, and plants permitting of course.
But it’s not a competition.
Some seasonal inspiration:
This is one of the weekly newsletters that is emailed out every Saturday night (no more, no less). If you liked the information make sure you sign up so you can get Elizabeth’s (sometimes snarky) writings delivered right to your inbox. You can read it on the website – obviously – but a copy of the newsletter isn’t posted to the website until several weeks later.
