I'm in taking a break.
I put two pieces of row cover on the hoops. I took the little one outside with me and she played in her big stroller and had her cold drink of milk. But after watching me put the second cover on, she lost patience- plus she needs a nap.
Everyone is napping today except me. My oldest daughter is home from school, not feeling well --she slept until Noon. Her dad is taking his lunchtime nap upstairs. The little one is having a small snack before her nap...
I have a whole mess of things to do.
Its going to rain tomorrow, and the nighttime lows for the rest of the week are expected to be in the mid 40's.... Since my row covers can give me as much as 4 degrees of frost protection, now might be a good time to plant all the hardier stuff. So i need the row covers on before they go in and before the carrots & parsnips sprout. The radishes are coming up and i need them protected with the Remay before they attract their pests and the cover also is supposed to help warm the soil. So, today needs to be the day.
This will also let me clear out one of the mini greenhouses. I can put some of the flats right in the garden rows to harden off.
Ok, got the little one to sleep. Big sister is staying inside to watch her...
Back to work.
