The pictures from top to bottom: very happy pepper plants under lights, freshly rototilled garden just about ready for some summer seeding, crooked rows of peas, unhappy broccoli in the heat, and elephant garlic in its glory.
Spring is definitely in high gear and the weather is being as unpredictable as it can be in April and May in northern Dauphin County in Central PA. It started semi-normal with a couple threats of extra cold temps (20's) that didn't materialize, but is ending with summer like temps in the high 80's. My broccoli and cold weather crops are NOT happy. The broccoli was just starting to adjust to being in the ground when the heat hit. It's now struggling to figure out what the heck is going on. I've never experienced a heat wave this early -- very odd (global warming??!?!)
