Yesterday and today are looking to be the best weather we've had in about 3 weeks. Cool, cloudy and rainy has been the norm, with the daytime highs in only the low 50s for the most part. NOT great growing weather. I've done everything I can to try to mitigate that. I don't think I've turned off the heat lamps in the last three weeks. On rate occasion, the sun has popped out for an hour or so and I could get the temps into the high 70s or sometimes low 80s during those stretches, but typically it has been a battle.
Weather forecast starting Sunday looks like we might be in a more spring like weather pattern. 70s and 80s with a lower change of rain. Yea! Maybe we can start growing these things. It has just felt like a battle most of May. Comparing this years plants to last year (which had much better weather), I would guess I'm about 6 days behind on growth. Which isn't bad considering. I started the plants 3 days later than last year, so maybe 3-4 days behind when looking at the total number of days grown.
