Last night and this morning, the air has been hazy and filled with the smell of smoke from the wildfires near FSJ. The temperature outside at 6:30am was 6 degrees. Now, at 8:10am, it is 3 degrees, raining, and snowing. While the precipitation is welcome, I do wish it was a few degrees warmer. Forecasts for the next three days call for overnight lows of -1 with more mixed rain and snow. There is a weather warning in effect for the region that says snow accumulations of 5-10cm are possible for certain areas. Typical ugly weather for the May long weekend!
Yesterday, I planted the cabbage transplants in the rock bed by the currant bush. Many of the seedlings were nibbled to death by something that left pin-sized holes in the leaves, but I still managed to end up with 13 transplants. I will happily use milk jugs to start my cabbage seed again next year. :-)
