Well it sure is a yo-yo of a spring here! For the most part our weather has been a week of cold weather near 0C, then a few days of low 20C, then back to cold! Two days ago we were having a pretty good snow shower, then today it was super hot! This sure is taking a toll on the plants outside.
In the greenhouse the seedlings are doing pretty good. I have noticed the germination rate is very slow this year, both with seed that I’ve saved and with newly purchased seed. Some tomatoes sprout in the normal 7 to 10 days, while others in the same flat have taken 3 to 4 weeks. I was just about to give up on some of them, then I found today they are starting to come up.
In the garden the peas are starting to come up and the rhubarb is just starting to leaf out. So far no sign of the asparagus, but it is still early here for that. With our weather going down near 0C again, it’s better that it waits anyway!
How are your seedlings doing? Has anyone else noticed the germination rate being slow this year?
