First, let’s re-cap April.
April ended with cool days with plenty of rainfall. This is a good thing. Sure, we had some night temperatures down into the thirties but very few of us experienced any damaging frost. April has really helped to create the ideal condition for May to be a wonderful planting month. I use my “trusty” soil thermometer and our soil temperature as of May 1 is at 58 degrees. This is great news as we enter May. Last year our soil temperature was 70 degrees at this same time period. What a difference a year makes for gardening.
Speaking of what a difference a year makes for gardening – all our lives have been changed with this COVID-19 pandemic. But, the one constant bright light that I am seeing is with gardening. More people and families are turning to plants and gardening more than ever before. People are using gardening as a way to be outside staying safe and having good quality family time. I love seeing this happening especially during these trying times in our lives.
May is lining up to be a fantastic planting month. Staying home is your safe haven. And, planting vegetables and flowers is a great outdoor activity to keep us active and sane during these trying times.
PLANT A LITTLE HAPPINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
