As one of my favorite human beings said to me yesterday, “Winter, when you’re this late to the party, don’t show up at all.” And as she, slightly north of us, expected SNOW last night she has reason to revoke her RSVP.
The fickle change in weather patterns is putting a serious damper on our One Square Foot project. Our windowsill is either too cold to promote growing – with chills radiating through the glass – or the heater is blasting nearby enough to dry our poor baby buds right out.
Spring, why do you tease me so?
We’ve been diligently watering and trying to fend off both the stifling heat and the bitter cold, adjusting temperatures, fitfully moving plants off the radiator, onto the radiator, off the radiator… but we haven’t given up hope. I’m going to love these damn plants ’til they bud, whether they ask to or not. Winter unwelcome.
