About to go to bed at about 2am, and it’s around 33°. Here we are on freakin’ April 20, and the heat is on, and I’m fretting about my strawberries getting nipped by a freeze. Supposedly it’s only forecast to get to 33, but that’s already been met with 5 more hours of darkness left.
Egads I wish it’d warm up already. We have one more night forecast near freezing (2morrow) and then it’s highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s for the next 10 days.
To add to my angst, I noticed today that one of my blackberries that had sprouted recently got “unprofessionally pruned” by some varmit. The fields and lawn are flush with lush green grass, and you have to munch on my 4in tall sprout?? I got 10 more raspberry plants that will hopefully sprout soon, I’ll have to try to figure out how to protect them.
