Our tomato and tomatillo plants are ready for the hardening off process but the weather isn’t even good enough for that right now. As I write, we have a dusting of snow on the ground, the wind chill is 23 degrees and a winter advisory has just been issued as the snow is forecasted to accumulate up to four inches. Somebody didn’t get the memo that it’s May 2nd!
Two days ago when the temperature was in the upper 70’s, I set out six walls of waters. I’m hoping they warmed the soil and will keep the soil warm during this cold snap so I can set out a few tomato plants after the snow melts. It will be interesting to see what the weather does this weekend. It certainly is hard to plant in a snowstorm!
