Now as Paul Harvey would have said here’s the rest of the story.
It’s May 2nd, 2013 and I am again under a freeze warning for the next 2 or maybe 3 nights!
My weather guy said it will be a hard freeze with a chance of rain or ‘snow’ Friday morning before sunrise. Snow in May! What’s up with that?
The wind woke me at 2.30am, its holding steady at about 35mph and gusting to over 45mph at times.
Yesterday afternoon I cut some 6 inch diameter PVC pipe into 8 inch lengths to put over my tender seedlings that I planted into my garden Sunday afternoon. I’m hopeful that the PVC pipe will keep the cold wind from breaking by seedlings of at ground level and give them a bit of protection from the cold as well. After sunrise I will check my tiny plants and see how well they are standing up to the cold north wind from our latest arctic cold front.
This cold blast won’t be helpful for my carrots, lettuce and radishes, but they will stand up to a lot of cold air much better than yellow summer squash and pepper seedlings.
My plan is to buy my tomato seedlings and plant tomato’s and cucumbers as soon as this arctic blast has moved out of southwest Oklahoma. Maybe as early as this weekend. After Friday night Saturday on is forecast to be in the low 40’s at night and low 70’s for daytime highs. I am hopeful this will be our last arctic blast this spring.
To say spring 2013 has been an unusual is the understatement of the 21st century!
