This was the temperature at our house this morning, which is why we still can't plant anything for a few more weeks. It doesn't matter if the middle-of-the-day temps are in the 60s; if we plant our impatiens and geraniums now, not to mention our tomato plants, they'll all wither and die in the early morning hours when Jack Frost visits.
Case in point in this post by the nice folks over at The Maine Life.
My problem is that we had those really warm couple of weeks, and I got the garden all cleaned up and ready a few weeks earlier than usual. Now it seems that it's time to plant. But it isn't.
Argh - the waiting.
