What season is it?

That’s been a hard question to answer lately! It’s been colder than “normal”, especially at night, so planting is a little behind schedule and there have been some unexpected loses. Some light frosts last week nipped the potatoes, and it’s still cold enough at night that summer veggies need to be covered. The first rows of tomatoes and squash are in the ground, but covered with remay (a light cloth that lets light through), and cucumbers and eggplants are soon to be planted and given the same treatment. Luckily though, the leafy green vegetables are loving this weather. More mustard and collards!
