Finally we're receiving some rain (radioactive as it may be), because, believe it or not, I've seen things drying out a bit -at least at the surface where the young'ns roots are. The beach farm broccoli and peas and leeks are just sitting there wondering why NYC weather is acting all average, all normal, instead of heating up nice and fast like we've been getting used to over the years. On the other hand, the freezing temperatures we've been having at night (although that's largely over) never did in any of my tender starts like it seemed sure would if it were November.
Of course, it's not November, it's about April and the sun is quite a bit stronger now, leaving much heat in the objects and ground around the plants to radiate all night. Speaking of the sun, you should see what it has been doing to my tomato starts. You should see them, but you can't because I haven't photographed them. They are cookin on our kitchen window seed starting shelf, and I mean that in the fast-growing sense. I cannot imagine raising them in their paper tubes for another month and a half -what, will I need to put tomato cages around them?!
I've recently taken up a new activity -one I've thought about for quite some time and finally signed-up. I'll report on it later, but I will say that it has to do with landscape, parks and hiking, and you can do it too.
