Tom Kasper advises that the cold spring temperatures
- regardless of the steady rains and warmer temps in early summer - may result in fewer and smaller vegetables and fruits in the fall. Hardy gardeners should always consider utilizing tactics in the spring to give their plants a good start.
Yes, winter does seem to be lasting too long. Nonetheless, hardy gardeners can find plenty to do, such as continuing to clean up the yards and gardens after winter, pruning bushes, and planting early vegetables like peas and spinach. Spring will eventually arrive in full bloom, and your garden and yard will thank you for it.
