Garden Talks May 21--Hot winds beware!

Hello again,

Warm weather is here! And that is great for most plants BUT beware of increasing warm winds later today as the hot winds from the southwest can quicky dry out soil and of course tender leaves of many young plants. In particular beware of young cucumbers and other vine crops as they do not like lots of hot or cold wind when young.

The above paragraph was written this AM and now I write at 1:45 PM. It is hot and dry; make sure your tender plant material is protected by seed shield or even a bed sheet if you feel it is real vulnerable for the next few hours. Also newly planted material of all sizes should be well watered!

Call us at 1-800-244-3860 with any questions!

More soon about gardening, for now back to business.....
