After low 20’s destroyed my citrus trees in December,
I now have to contend with this strange spate of 70’s in January. The grape hyacinth and asparagus are beguiled into beginning their springtime rituals, and they may not make it through the next freeze.
But, for the most part, the worst thing I have to contend with is my cabbages believing that it’s time to start blooming rather than growing into nice, tight heads.
The leeks, garlic, and lacinato kale are all very happy to have the unusual heat.
Meanwhile, in the greenhouse, the early spring plants are almost ready to go into 3″ pots,
and the next round of beets just went into the ground today.
