These are photos of my garden this morning on the left and this afternoon on the right. Our weather is having a problem. Not really snow, its slush.
This morning I checked my soil temperature. 36F in one area, 40F in another. Bbbrrr. I've read that peas shouldn't go in until the soil temperature is 50F! So I'm trying to be patient. Yesterday I turned the soil in one bed, where the peas will go. It is still frozen down at about 6-8 inches. It felt like my shovel kept hitting a big rock. I think my garden is slow to warm up because it gets alot of midday shade from the house next door (to the south). Its not a problem later in the season when the sun is higher, but I suppose this is what's going on now.
