Ah, the busy life of this credit crisis is driving me batty. That said, I didn't post last night because after working 12 hours I went over to my folks house and helped them move all night. A bit of physical activity was just the ticket to take my mind off work. Unfortuantely I'm extremely sore today, but oh well.
This evening all I got done in the garden was to follow through with my plans to test my thermometers. They are now both side by side outside in my garden area. One reads 45 and the other 44.8 Not perfect, but close enough for government work I guess. So, if they can be trusted to read trueish, then this evening the temperature difference inside my hoop cover was down to just over 1 degree. /sigh. I had expected much better results. Instead I'm getting inconsistent results at best. Anyone else have proof that hoop covers keep beds warmer? I can't seem to prove it either way. I'll keep at it but so far my results have been disappointing at best.
Oh, and don't worry, I'm not burning out on my garden. My job, maybe, but mostly I'm feeling frustrated that the more I do the behinder I get. That's not normal for me. I'm usually a very productive person. Hehe, with my schedule I bet you've gathered that. What I really want is to spend some time in the garden, when it's warm and I can see what I'm doing. Oh, and maybe, just maybe, I'd like to harvest a salad out of it. Grrr.
Anyway, I was thinking, I should really plant some of those empty squares in my beds. Why I have bare squares I have no idea. What can I grow if I plant it today that will be able to harvest, maybe even to preserve? That would be fun. Not sure how I'd research that.
Well, I sincerely hope you get out in your garden to walk around and pick up some fallen leaves or pull a weed or two. That's what I hope to do.
Enjoy your garden! I sure do mine.
