This week, le jardin got moved off of the bench in the living room and out onto the patio.
I never thought this day would come. Except for when I did.
Can we all just take a moment to give thanks for another year where I planted things on finished wood that we can’t rip out and managed to avoid ruining it?
Some people might prefer to harden-off their plants over a progression of days.
My beef with that concept:
- I have no desire to wrangle plants in and out-of-doors on a daily basis. This would be akin to having a pet. There is a reason we don’t have…a pet.
- I don’t want to pay that much attention to the weather. Is it freezing? Is it not going to be freezing?
Or we could just distill that into I don’t care that much.
So, rather, I waited until I was feeling very certain that we would not be seeing a frost again.
And now that I’ve typed that, we will probably have a frost which requires me to bring my tiny patio-Eden indoors once more.
But anyway, I brought the plants outside and so naturally, instead of worrying about cool(er) temperatures, my plants got to play Sahara in the mid-80’s.
They are now growing sideways. And none of them are pointing in the same direction (AKA towards the sun).
I just don’t think this is how it is supposed to work.
What is your spring weather like? Tropical or tropical?
Gardeners: Do you move your plants in and out-of-doors as the weather warms up?
