39-40Â°F ? -- that's tough Too low for even tomatoes, so warm weather plants must be suffering. For me, the sudden cool down to overnights in the 50's have actually been a blessing since the peas and broccoli that were threatening to finish up and die due to the "skip spring temperatures and go for full burn heatwave" have had a reprieve.nltaff wrote:...And hasn't the weather been just so so uncooperative? I've awakened to 40, even 39 degrees for a little over a week now, and I'm just tired of carrying my basil flats in and out of the house. My poor tomatoes and peppers get wind-whipped every day! Thought of you as I cleared the weeds from the asparagus bed. Threw all the slugs into the woods, found a toad, so I installed a flowerpot house for it!
Actually, no, not the slug part, the fetching a pot to half-bury for the toad part. I once paid a student of mine, back in the 90s a nickel for every toad he brought me (I supplied the shoeboxes).thinking of me when throwing away slugs
