Did you plant some seeds?

The last two weeks were warm!
We broke records for May.

After our classes did you remember how warmth 
cuts down on the time of a seed to sprout?

I planted my beans earlier than I usually do
It was warm and they won't be sitting in the cold wet ground

Beans won't sprout even at 50 degrees but give them
68 degrees and they will sprout in Eleven days

Give a bean seed 77 degrees and they sprout in eight days.

Can you see why I don't plant them in May usually?

Now is a choice time.  Plant like crazy.

Put a scoop of compost in the spot and plant a seed today!

It will rain this week-end and then warm up again.

Think I'll go put some cucumber seeds in!
