It is an interesting time of the year with night time temperatures dipping close to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The Weather Channel suggests that tonight it will be 34 degrees here in Hingham. At our location we have the advantage of a huge heat sink with the ocean one hundred feet away. In the fall it really works to our advantage. In the spring however the ocean is cold. Each of you has different mini climates. Temperatures here reached 108 degrees in full sun this afternoon at the garden’s surface. The Mel’s Mix got warm which should affect the temperature of the Square Foot Garden throughout the evening.
I decided to cover the plants this tonight. The plants that we have planted are cold weather plants. However some of these plants will not survive a frost. They are starting to look good and I would not like to replant now that they seem to have a great start.
Lettuce is just a few weeks away from harvest. It will be time to eliminate one item from your grocery list.
