Whether you're new at homesteading, an old hand at it, raising a few chickens and vegetables, or working to get your family prepared for the next emergency, this is the spot to visit for information from home to garden, emergency prep and all in-between. Also hints, tips and garden alternatives to those facing limitations due to a handicap or age. For the Country or Urban Homesteader or Micro Agriculture food gardener, no matter where you live.
Yep! We have a cold front coming in. A few nights of the 30's. Guess I'll have to get my garden blankets out. Wouldn't you know. If I hadn't put a few things in, this probably would not have happened. Oh well, only 2 nights, so they say.
I have started putting some things in already. Yes....we are still open to frost around here, but hopefully if that happens, we will get a good "heads up" from the weather man (not at 11:45pm as in the past) and I can just go out and cover.
So, what went in? I finally got the pansies in. Hopefully they will do well enough to get some nice, edible flowers from them for salads. Then, I just tried a couple tomato plants and hot peppers to see if I can get something a little earlier. I've been so tempted to do more, but, I'm pushing it going this early. Especially with the tomatoes and peppers.
