Mother's Day 2010

Here in the Mid-Atlantic region the long accepted rule of thumb is that summer season plants can safely go outside on Mother's Day weekend. Not this year! We have had many very warm days so far this Spring, but this weekend has been very windy and downright chilly. The forecast is for a low of 38 degrees for the next two nights! I covered my cold frame with two layers of canvas drop cloths to try to keep in some of the heat from today's sunshine. I also covered my potted Tomato plants with plastic trash bags to protect them from tonight's chill.

Happy Mother's Day to my mom who is in sunny warm Florida !

yeah, I have nothing outside yet and I haven't even started hardening my tomatoes. I have prepped some of the beds but then cold rain drove me from sowing spinach and zucchini. The onions are sprouting nicely, and that's about it.
