Winter's Last Gasp?

High Tunnel closed for the night
The past two nights have been a challenge for our tender plants – even in the high tunnel. When the outdoor thermometer read 31 degrees, inside the tunnel it was 37  -- and that was just the air temperature, not the temperature inside the floating covers.
Tomatoes under their protective covers
Add the cold temperatures to the rain we've had in the past couple of days and you have farmers who are stymied in their attempts to get things planted. The schedule has been revised -- and revised again!
We're still on schedule to open the Farmers' Market on Friday, May 23 and in my next post, I'll show you what we're offering for sale.
