One May 18th a few years back, the temperature dropped to eighteen degrees. Even with cover tomatoes died back to the soil. As a result we remain cautious about early plantings of heat loving crops.
Now that we are past that cold date, Ken has been transplanting those crops. As greens are harvested out of the mobile tunnel, he has been planting in the open spaces. Tomatoes are in and peppers are ready to go.
The irrigation pond that dried up last year and was dug deeper has water in it!
