Gonna be in the 20s nights here a few nights this week. Was nice out day time yesterday but it took me too long to finally get out to enjoy it so only had a couple of hours to play in the back yard. Then it was mostly digging up winter savory and picking up tree seeds. grrrrr Did move a wheelbarrow full of bricks closer to the greenhouse. Stuck indoors lady sitting today.
We are having a strange spring, its rained everyday and over cast , had a hand full of really nice days, some of my plants are starting to turn yellow from lack of sunshine and too much moisture, The veggie garden is very slow, but hey I don,t have to water it for a change.
Thanks Lyn and William, you really do get a custom to where you live, you are all doing really well to get out and do anything with temperatures under 30f, when it gets that cold here I am tucked up under the bed covers and it only gets that cold a couple of times a year.
:( Winter is so sad for us gardeners. I'm trying to use what pavers & bricks I have to lay a floor in the green house. But my back was giving me fits from moving cinder blocks and a box full of dirt and dug up plants. Slowly digging out of my indoor mess too, and moving some houseplants to bigger pots..
I just planted my elephant garlic the other day and laid straw on top of them for the winter, 5 large cloves. I never had the large cloves like this before so it's exciting for me to see how they turn out. By the way 26 degrees out side this morning plants are all dead of course it was 31 yesterday so that helped them. I went out last evening before sun went down and picked the last of the peppers and toms.
When do you know to harvest your garlic, is it when the plants foliage dies. I never seem to get this right.
Thanks for the reminder I need to get some garlic into the ground before it freezes.
