Ugh. This week gave me a nice anxiety attack. Weather has been looking up for the past few weeks…our last frost date is TODAY after all. This past week the blueberries were blooming, tomatoes in the greenhouses were sprouting, even some potatoes were sprouting!…and then…FREEZING temperatures two nights this week 😦 I was in such a foul mood those two days, just upset about the inevitable.
The freeze burned the potato plants 😦 They seem to be coming back, slowly…
We won’t really know what kind of effect the weather had on the blueberry bushes until later in the season when they size up (or not).
While it was still nice, I planted some more kale, lettuce, carrots, beets, and spinach at the beginning of this week. I anxiously waited out the cold weather in the middle of the week. And I sighed with relief at the end of the week as the temperatures steadied.
The plan was to mow once the weather was looking up, if I could get the lawn mower started, but towards the end of the week, the baby moved…or my body just gave up…it became impossible to walk, as bones were cracking (feeling like they were breaking) and I could not walk. I put myself on bed rest and prayed everything would settle soon. After all, I have 3-5 more weeks to go.
Now that the weather is looking up again, my TO DO list is getting LONG. Kneeling actually feels wonderful so I am still really looking forward to all that needs to be done — transplanting from the garden, planting warmer weather crops, and harvesting some things soon!
