This has been the coldest March we’ve had in a while. Since we have been gardening on a larger scale in 2010 we have always had peas, radish, turnips, swiss chard, beets, carrots, and a few other types of greens planted directly in the soil by this time. But this year the cold air temperatures have kept the ground below our minimum germination temperature. It all looks like that could change soon with a nice weekend in the forecast. So, I don’t think we will have any type of a delay, it just has me feeling “edgy” to get at it.
As a note to potential new members… we have sold out of available shares for pick up on Tuesday. We do still have just a few left for the Friday pick up at the Bath Farmers Market. Speaking of the Bath Farmers Market, we just had a vendor’s meeting tonight and there will be a few new vendors this year and it looks like 90% of the vendors from last year are returning. This will be Bath’s 5th year for the farmer’s market. Congratulations to them, they are doing a great job growing the right way a little bit at a time.
Hoping for a warmer April!
