When does the soil temp equal air temp? Is this a riddle? Answer: Today!
Seriously, in the CG bed at 4″ depth, the temp reads 45°, and today the air temp reached 45°, down 15° from our heat wave last weekend, thanks to a cold front.
Fortunately, during the heat wave, the CG bed received its final 3 cu. yards of soil to fill in the tiers. Time to consider an early spring planting fairly soon; good excuse for another tea party!
Meanwhile, with sleet in the forecast outside, it’s time to get some basil, zinnia, and lobelia seeds planted inside!
