Ok, I'm not sure if I am on the right place to post this. I live in the midwest, central Illinois to be exact. I have done square foot gardening for many years and this year I have expanded my garden to 6 squares like we used to have at our former home. We had to build it on a hillside. My husband did a good job figuring out how to do it, though he really didn't make my paths as large as they should be, but I really can't complain because he did a lot of work.
We are having some really crazy weather here, 91 degrees one day and 45 the next. It is supposed to get down to 34 tonight Sad . I may cover some things, but my garden is in a rather protected area, so we shall see.

no frost!!

Post  kcamp3 on 5/17/2014, 8:57 am

Well, we survived the night. We did cover everything, but the temperatures did not get quite as low as we thought. My husband is already outside working, so I guess it is time for me to get started. Reportedly, warmer weather is on its way in a few days! I have more planting to do.

WELCOME Kcamp3
WOW that is pretty weird weather.  I was feeling pretty smug here that there was NO way that we could get a frost now... I guess you never say never.
