NE behind a month???

Post  jjc on 3/26/2013, 8:44 pm

I heard we are about a month behind the spring schedule for the North East, how will this affect the time table for starting seedlings indoors, do we have to bump everything up a month? I just started some peppers and tomatoes in vermiculite last night. Sad jjc

JJc who exactly did you hear this from, that we're behind by a month with the weather? I would disagree. Certainly the temperatures at night and the past week have been below average, but the angle of the sun has the buds coming on in the trees and my snow is almost gone.

I plan on indoor sowing of my seeds right on time. If I have to pot up that's what I will do. That is certainly better than sowing late and not having plants develop to maturity until September.

Here in the UK we are just over three week behind in average temps and if this latest cold spell does not go away in the next week we will be a good month behind.

We might be a month behind in temps from LAST year, but that was a freak year.

I realize my area is milder than the rest of NE but like Camp I'm staying on track. I planted out this time last year and I'm doing it again this year. I'll just have to cover at nights this year more often than last year. No biggie.

My outdoor spinach is up. I planted out starts of broccoil, kale, collards, pak choi, cabbage and onions last weekend.

Today I'm planting out more onion and some swiss chard starts, and then seeding beets and lettuces out there in these 3 front boxes:

I planted some of last years peas out there but they never came up. First I'll dig around and see if they've rooted or rotted. If the latter, I'm going to try soaking them this time and see if I can get them to sprout before putting them out. If not, I'll buy a new pack.

No worries...the days are longer now. sunny
