I feel for you right now, the late cold temps might get those potatoes, hope they're covered with a warmth source. This has been a very unusual
year freeze wise. I've had to replant my tomatoes two times already!
I'm in Austin, Zone 8. But even then I have a lot going on right now: Had lots of spinach and some has bolted due to several days of mid eighties
to nineties heat, giant dill, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic from last fall, cucumber, green beans, yellow squash, egg plant, green
velvet okra, key limes, meyers lemon, black berries, chamomile, lavender, pomegranate, thyme, oregano, rosemary, cantaloupes, blueberries,
Don't feel envious 'cause the true heat hasn't hit here yet.......
In a few weeks all that will be left are the African origin veggies, all the others can't take the heat. Last year the tomatoes roasted on the vines,
and everything other than the heat loving veggies couldn't take it.
And to make things more interesting we are going into the 30"s tomorrow night! What's that all about! I've been dealing with the eighties and now
this? My garden is totally confused as am I!
To all the gardeners out there "Hold steady" we'll make it through!
