Jeez.... it is making me crazy.... ordinarily I would have been planting outdoors a couple weeks ago. Here's my forecast for tomorrow (3/24!!):
Details for Sunday, March 24
Windy...a light wintry mix in the morning changing to rain, mixed with snow at times in the afternoon. Cold. High 37F. Winds ENE at 20 to 30
mph. Chance of precip 70%.
Evening: Rain and snow in the evening turning to all snow late. Low 32F. ENE winds shifting to SW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of precip 70%. Snow accumulating 2 to 4 inches.
I took my 6 trays of cabbage broccoli and celery out for a few hours yesterday to get a little sun and so I could water them (they are all now in trays with holes in them) and then hauled them all back in. I've been bringing them in and out for almost a month now. They are looking the worse for wear and I'm tired of it!
More snow in the forecast Mon and Tues. The frustrating part is that the cabbage and broccoli could withstand a little snow and frost if hardened off and in the ground. I just can't get the little bit of break to get them to that point. About the time we are getting close, it goes back down to 19.... Where is spring?! And the longer it waits to get here, the more likely we go straight from winter to summer, with hardly any spring in between!
