Preheating the garden
It's hard to believe with
the snow flying and temperatures plummeting, but Monday was a beautiful
day in the low 50s and Kayla and I took the opportunity to prep a
lettuce bed. Our earliest planting of the year is always lettuce
under quick hoops
at the beginning of February, and sometimes I just plant and erect the
quick hoops all at once. However, this year is on the cold side,
so I decided to put up the quick hoops a couple of weeks early to give
the ground time to preheat. Lettuce will germinate at 35 degrees Fahrenheit, but prefers the ground be at least 40 degrees.
