What the . . . hail?
Yesterday it was hailing. No joke, hail.
I decided last week that I’m not waiting for warm weather to prepare my garden beds–as long as it’s 45 degrees or more, I’m going to do it. And then it hails. And snows. And last night when I tried to write this post–the power went out.
My only consolation is that if it’s cold enough to snow, it’s not yet warm enough to grow. So even though I should be able to transplant my broccoli and parsley this week, I’m going to wait until it stops snowing. My peas, onions, and spinach will have to wait as well.
Stuck inside, I finally got around to starting some peppers and tomatoes. Now they’re cozy under my grow lights. Maybe that’s what the universe is trying to tell me–to take a nap and wait for the spring. It has to come sometime. . .
Snow, yeah we are supposed to get snow this week. I live in the PURPLE ZONE!!! Sometimes we can plant in May. This year we are going to try Mel’s greenhouse top for our boxes and try a few plants a little “early” in May, since we have such a short growing season. I’ll let you know how it goes!~
I was waving to you! 🙂
I just went through Lehi a few days ago on our way home to Washington, and thought this is where my gardening friend Emily lives!!
Oh goodness! Snow is so NOT good. My husband keeps telling me it is too early to plant (I want to do my peas! Never done them this early, but your site and others say it is time! – We are Zone 2/Blue). We still have to get our beds ready (Expanding to 9 this year). Hoping to get out tonight, we’ll see how it goes.
Just curious what city you are located in?
