I have to go buy all new transplants for my vegetable garden. Following
an 80 degree weekend then a 70 degree weekend, I decided to get the
garden going. Frost on St. Patricks day turned all my green brown. How
I think I'll wait a couple more weeks.
It's been a cold spring here in South Carolina. We've had some
warm days, but the nights have been in the thirties and low
forties. If the weather doesn't turn soon, I'm going to have a
problem. My seedlings are about to out grow their little pots,
but I don't have room on my seed starting stand for larger pots.
Usually by this time I've repotted everything that needed it and
put it out into the cold frame. Actually, last year at this time
I had simply moved all the seedlings out to the front porch since
the weather was lovely.
This year I haven't even started any of the herbs and flowers
because I'm afraid they'll sprout and I won't have a place for
them under the lights. I find myself checking The Weather
Channel's web site every day for the ten day forecast, hoping
I'll see those night time temperatures inch up.
Gah! I just want it to hurry up and really be spring!

The AVERAGE last freeze date for Dallas is March 13th, and I know how
intoxicating 70 and 80 degree days can be, but the key word is average. We
should be ok at this point...but....who really knows. I would suggest
floating row covers for young transplants to keep their toes warm at night.
