Seed Swaps

Here comes the cold!

25 Mar 2012
Rainy 19°C / 66°F


I’m very glad indeed that I’ve only got one flat in the pop-up greenhouse, as it will temporarily need to shelter in the house (probably on the living room table). Luckily, the goji seedling graciously puts up with getting moved around, so will not mind returning to the “hot” greenhouse (attached to the house, receives warm air at night via the air exchange with the house).

Tomorrow night should be 22°F! I know, I’ve done a fair bit of complaining about the early heat, but I’m not quite ready for that level of chill right now. Here’s to hoping that my fellow gardeners in the affected area don’t lose any early bloomers. I’m off to load up the wood stove. Brr!



Ouch! Guess we are used to such wild weather swings down here in our diurnal climate. Stay warm with your plants!

We’re getting it here too. From 24C two days ago to -5 tomorrow … it’s Spring all right! :)

flowerweaver – it’s tough for the trees that are much further along than they should be – luckily, it’s mostly the non-fruiting trees that are in flower right now.

HollyBee – I’d be glad if it would just stay cooler (well, maybe not 22° or -5°) until May or so – summers are long enough! They don’t need to start in March!
