Brrrrr. It was 33 F at my home in Searsmont this morning. We figured this was not a good year to experiment with early crops at THMS. Any beans or corn planted this week would have rotted in the cold, wet weather.
On a lighter note, we planted six varieites of onions and eight varieties of potatoes this week. The rain soaked them in nicely and we look forward to a late summer harvest! Some early greens, broccoli, peas and cabbage have been planted for the summer cooking program. We are still tryuing to imagine continuous warm weather!
