It's +10C and that's the minimum for our tomato plant panic.gif

The wind from the north blows at 15 m/s and rain drizzling on and off. I also hope those white flurries in the air are bird cherry petals... damned.gif

That's a shame for you both as I see you love gardening and the outdoors, but from this article it looks like this dramatic weather will continue.

Quote:According to Francis and a growing body of other researchers, the Arctic ice loss adds heat to the ocean and atmosphere which shifts the position of the jet stream – the high-altitude river of air that steers storm systems and governs most weather in northern hemisphere.

"This is what is affecting the jet stream and leading to the extreme weather we are seeing in mid-latitudes," she said. "It allows the cold air from the Arctic to plunge much further south. The pattern can be slow to change because the [southern] wave of the jet stream is getting bigger. It's now at a near record position, so whatever weather you have now is going to stick around," she said.

Francis linked the Arctic temperature rises to extreme weather in mid latitudes last year and warned in September that 2012's record sea ice melt could lead to a cold winter in the UK and northern Europe.

I got up to the cottage on Wednesday morning, and in the 48 hours I've been here it has rained all but about 10 of them, a steady straight down constant rain.
I haven't been able to get anything done, (but up here is still better than being in suburbia).
If I can't get out and do some weeding soon, the garden is going to get away from me.
I already have all my asparagus bolted, the taters need to be mulched, etc.
This year I'm going to stake the tomatoes, rather than cage, because they are too invasive to allow to let run.
What appears to be a fuzziness in the foreground by the fence is the asparagus, all sixteen 3rd year plants are from 4-6 feet high. Anyone know if they can be cut back again to produce edible asparagus?

Here's a picture:

Hey Bohica, I prefer to tackle weeding during or after a rainfall as the ground is softer and the weeds so much easier to pull out.

"It's +10C and that's the minimum for our tomato plant"

That dosen't sound right, you should be able to get down to light frost without any damage. Pound some stakes into the ground and make a triangle around it, then tent it with an old bed sheet.

I also prefer right after, (easier), but I'm just waiting for the "after" part to arrive.

It's a berry tomato so it's not the hardy stuff I usually grow. I think it'll do fine above freezing, but I'm not taking any chances. 13.gif We just gave it a bigger pot so we can move it around. I opted for a smaller tomato plant as they tend to get enormous in my vegetable patch.
