My seedlings of spinach, broccoli, and some lettuces are growing very slowly this year. I also noticed the garden centers have pulled a bunch of their veggies indoors to stay warm. Are we having a colder-than-usual Spring? I am in Vienna, VA.
Not so great. It dropped to 25°F and Jack Frost bit and it was in its green house plus wrapped and covered with 2 blankets. Maybe it will survive. BTW, the one that's frost damage is a Big Boy not Husky Cherry Red.Maybe if i cover the miniature green house the Husky Cherry Red will survive the snow and 29°F temperature the 20th. Just hoping the soil temperature will assist in preventing frost bite. If this actually produces tomatoes it will be a record being we always hope for a ripe tomato of some variety by July 4th.
It's global warming.Here in central Texas, it is definitely a cooler than usual spring. First we had a snow storm with single digit temperatures when we should have been planting potatoes and onions, and now temperatures are running about 10 degrees below normal. Vegetables (peas, onions, beans) are growing, and I just recently planted squash, tomato and pepper starts, and cucumbers. Only the broccoli and lettuces seem to be enjoying this weather. We are at least three weeks to a month behind on everything else.
Why is Mother Nature doing this to us?
