After looking at the planting schedule in the Kansas State University Garden Guide, I did the math on the number of weeks needed to start my transplants for the Acre. The guide recommends May for the ideal time to set out tomatoes and peppers. While I do agree with that time, as a gardener, I tend to be one ‘those people’ who likes to push the envelope as far as setting out tomatoes.
Winter has officially arrived, and I’m already thinking spring 2020. I tell myself every nice day we have is one less day that we have a chance of cold, stormy weather. On sunny days, even in the winter, the greenhouses need to be ventilated to keep the temperature where the plants favor it. Plus, we’re not having to keep furnaces running to warm the space up for the plants. Plants are like us, they seem to do better on warm, sunny days!
