Soil Warming Up!

After my last post, I realized that I should NOT have covered up the garden beds with black plastic while it was still so cool; no wonder they were so much colder than the one covered with the clear plastic. I unrolled the black plastic from the big bed, so it’s had two days of mostly sun(though today the sun was in and out) and when I got home today, I took the soil temperatures again.
Wowee. What a difference some sun over two days made!

The bed that I uncovered, which had been 44.7 degrees on Saturday is now 51.6 degrees F. The bed covered with clear plastic is now 56.7 degrees F — on Saturday, it was 50.9 degrees F.

Sometimes, the sun can be our friend.
