Sunday, we planned out this year’s garden – including more than
usual. Definitely making time for canning this year. Had the equipment,
not the time. Since warmth – and dry (drat!) – are coming early this
year to the West, Southwest and Southeast, it’s important to get our
garden ready in February and seedlings sprouted and sunk in the ground
by late March instead of late April – a full month ahead of normal. The
most time-consuming aspect will getting the Super Soil pre-warmed as
described in Garden Gold, which will only require a couple hours, so plants get a head start and beat this Summer’s killing heat.
These NOAA maps show the probability of temperatures exceeding the norm,
so roughly 1/3 of the Country can get their veggies and fruits in
early. Unfortunately, as 2014 progresses, a bunch of us will be sweating
bullets living in tank tops and shorts.
