I will be doing two monthly updates of my garden as 2013 progresses. This is my first update. I will be adding in several garden tips and tricks within the updates to help make the videos a little more valuable toward your time.
It is mid march and because we have had unseasonably colder temperatures, I am about 2 weeks behind in planting and my greenhouse shelf units have filled up with plants. This week we will be having two 25 degree nights. That is just too cold. A little frost is fine for cool crops but 7 degrees below freezing is a lot. I did push my beets, lettuce and kohlrabi into the ground. I made micro domes out of cups to keep them from freezing through. I hope it works!
The tips I discuss are:
- Using plastic cups for frost protection
- Thirty minutes of sun an wind to 'toughen-up' your tomatoes
- Black painted milk jugs to hold heat
- Perennial beds to bring in good bugs
- And a couple other things.
