We're coming off an amazing weekend here (temperatures up close to 70 degrees) and according the forecast, we're supposed to have a full week of 60 and 70 degree weather with lows above freezing! Crazy.
I opened up the hoop houses yesterday and decided it was going to be warm enough to just leave them open overnight :-) I'll do this as much as possible. While I'm excited for the warm weather, I know that it probably won't last...give it a couple of weeks and we just might have some snow on the ground...but who knows after the interesting winter we've had!
While I've started lots of little seedlings inside, aside from the beets and snap peas I mentioned a couple of weeks ago I haven't planted anything outside yet this spring. I do think, though, that it's time for my little broccoli starts to go out and I want to get some fava beans and more peas in the ground. I've never grown favas before, but am a little worried it might be too late already given our warm weather. Any thoughts?
