By the way, this is an incredible site to compare weather data from places around the world. There is a section towards the bottom where it offers data specifically for gardening such as "Growing Season" and "Growing Degree Days" (which I still don't understand so if anyone does understand this please help explain).
If this location is similar to the exact location of his farm I am very surprised how cold it is and how short of a growing season he had, much less then where I live in the mountains of Colorado! Although they have WAY more moisture than we have. Still, I want to do my best to develop my humble plot to be as lush and bountiful as possible.
I would love to hear your thoughts!
(edit: changed the word "more" to "less"--I had it backwards)
I can't take it! You are too smart for me! Here is the tiny ad:
