4-11-13 Sam and Keith in our garden this past Thursday. A bit different from last year at this time. Snow and rain continue this week.
Well, it is April 14. When I woke up it was 34 degrees out with the windchill it felt like 19 degrees Fahrenheit. Our weather calendar states that the record high was in 2003 at 89 degrees, and the low was in 1928 at 18 degrees. The record snow fall was in 1983 when we received 13.6 inches. So it looks like this year’s weather will rival some state weather records.
With that said, we have been planting indoors and preparing for spring planting. Mother Nature may be confused, but we certainly are not. And we have our eyes set on many garden joys yet to come.
Last year at this time, we had planted potatoes.
Last year, our cold season crops and our vines were also planted. But this year is far different.
Sam examines the roots of the young plants as he opens up the bottom of the newspaper pots prior to replanting.
Keith is repotting the young plants. Just hoping it warms up so that we can get them in the ground outside.
The weather this next week looks good for some moisture possibilities, especially if it were February:). At the time of writing, we have had rain, snow and sleet. We most definitely appreciate the moisture, just wish Mother Nature would understand that it was April, and that it really does need to warm up outside…even if we live in Minnesota.
