Central Virginia gardening
06 June 2012
I hung up my spring laundry line the other day. It is not for laundry. It is my current device for dealing with our fluctuations in temperature. In an attempt to get cool weather vegetables with temperatures varying by 30 degrees, I try everything. I planted a flat of broccoli in February which is now producing though it has been frozen and fried. Early in the season, I cover it on frosty nights and later in the season I hang my line over it. Same with spinach and peas.
