Arctic Blast? Cold Spell? Brrr!

     A picture is worth a thousand words but bear with me and let me just explain a little. It is still August! The temperature on the left is in my house! By default then, the one on the right is outside. Brrr! It is mid morning and normally I'd be out in the garden. Yes, I know, I need a new phone and yes I like cats. Don't get distracted by that. Stay with me :)  It's cloudy out and obviously chilly. My husband loves to point out that this temperature would feel balmy in March but, though that may be how he copes, that just doesn't cut it for me. Last week it was scorching hot! So, I went under the covers and watched the morning news for a little while but I'm itching to get out.

So, tea in hand I'm at the door, just can't do it yet. Here's how I'll coerce myself. 
Hey, check out the temperature difference. It's cold outside but it's practically as cold inside! The vegetable garden needs watering and harvesting. I heard on the news that warmer weather is on its way so the gardens are not giving up on me. I'm not giving up on them. That should do it, along with the jeans I dug out, a big warm hoodie, SOCKS! (haven't warn those for months) and gardening gloves. 
As we say here in Wisconsin, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes."
Ok, later!

  1. As long as the soil temperatures stay above 40 degrees and you don't get any strong, cold winds, most of your plants will be okay. It is tough on us humans to get out there when it first starts getting cold though doesn't it?
