Cuilionn BS: Gardening 2010 (745* d) RE: BS: Gardening 2010 05 Apr 10


Here in Southern Maine, our first daffodil bloomed on Easter-- and we heard our first Spring Peepers (frogs) night before last, coming home from a Passover Seder. It's an ecumenical gardening season!

In our hoop house, the kale is about four inches tall, chard is leafing out nicely, and mesclun lettuce mixes & brassicas have sprouted nicely. Yesterday's 80-degree (F) temps frizzled the tops of the spinach, but I think it'll survive if I'm careful about venting the not-so-cold frames.

The maple trees are covered with fat red buds and the sap run was finished long before "Maine Maple Sunday" so that all the sugarhouses had to boil plain water for demonstration purposes. Our peas were planted last week, weeks earlier than normal.

It's been so unseasonably warm here that everything is suddenly, crazily green. My gardener's heart doesn't know whether to rejoice or panic!
