Couple weeks ago I order garden fabric for next year. This weekend we used it to cover or current winter veggies. Winter is so not done with us Southerners just yet. Here is what I learned:
It works if the wind doesn't blow it loose. Ya know those caricatures of winter? The ones where the white, snow/cloud face is blowing curls of wind? There's a reason for winter is characterized that way. So Winter blew off and tore some of garden fabric but I keep going out and tucking it back in because that's what gardeners do; perseverate, I mean, persevere.
It has crossed my mind that we might get lucky on the back side of this winter and have a cool, rainy summer. Wouldn't that be nice? Yes it would. For example, like last July 4th.
