I was talking gardening with a friend of mine the other day. He's been gardening for a long time. On top of that, he's inherited a lot of family knowledge about growing things around these parts.
In the past his knowledge served him well. His gardens produced well. The last few years his gardens haven't done as well. He says the old ways don't quite work as well. From what he's seen, he's a firm believer in climate change. More of his growing is done indoors or under cold frames.
Right now, after some really nice weather, we actually stand a chance of snow the next two nights. Temperatures are predicted to be 27 degrees Fahrenheit. A few days after that, we could get back up into the 80s. I'm just glad we still have our starter plants inside.
At least the wild greens are doing well. I think I'll pick a mess of those for the pot tomorrow.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
