It’s Time To Start Planting 2010

by on Apr.17, 2010, under Gardening, General

Well, we are witnessing another strange season in norhtern New Jersey. No surprise!!! I’m almost done with my indoor seeds and have started many outdoor plants. Peas went into the ground about a month ago and I recently planted lettuces and carrots outside. Now is the time to plant trees if you want to. Most species have bloomed early despite the cold and snowy winter. The heat wave we experienced in early April accelerated alll growth. Thank God it ended and we are back to more typical weather for this time of year. I started my tubers (cannas and dahlias) and am actually keeping them outside for now. Watch for frost if you want to keep your plants safe. Remember many tropical and sub-tropical plants react negatively to a 39 degree temperature rather than 32. This is because water is densist at 39 degrees which separates it from all other compounds. This is why water is a miracle. If it were more dense as a solid than a liquid the oceans, lakes, and rivers would freeze from the bottom up and all life on earth would have to be completely different.
