Erratic global warming


Scientists don't like the term "global warming" because not all areas are getting hotter. And even spots like ours where the average temperatures are rising showcase a much more prominent change --- more climate extremes of both sorts (highs and lows).

The smart way to react in the garden is to resist jumping on the early-spring bandwagon or the out-of-zone-perennial bandwagon, no matter how tempting they both might be. I've been dragging my heels despite warm weather, planting at my usual times, and was very grateful for that fact when the mercury dipped to ten degrees early Thursday morning. I might even have to replant the spring lettuce that's just barely germinating beneath the quick hoops --- luckily a handful of seeds is easy to scatter. Thank goodness none of our fruit trees have yet bloomed!
