May is here at last, with its promise of warmer weather. This weekend I’ll be planting some tender vegetables like lettuce, eggplants and peppers. Squash, zucchini, pumpkins and tomatoes have to wait a bit longer. I’ll cover them with row cover to trap heat during the day and keep them warm at night. I use U-hooks to keep the row cover from blowing away in the wind.
I also have to add another string to the pea poles. My sugar snap peas are two feet tall.
