  • Slow start, cool spring

    I want to say spring has sprung, but it hasn’t landed.  
    I have 215 Freedom Ranger chicks coming in the mail next week and I want warm-not just sort of warm-for the new two-legged arrivals.
    My lettuces, potatoes, onions and kale are fine (they will actually thrive in these conditions) but I need warm before I can even think of putting a tomato, bean or cucumber out in the garden.
    Two things that can set you back in the vegetable garden from the start: poorly prepared soil and seed or seedlings set out too early.
