Blankets, cover houses and used sun visors are all implement to keep the frost at bay when growing in the early spring of Indiana. While we are beyond the hard freeze, a frost is looming which means the plants go inside and outside on the tiny urban farm.
I don’t take many risks with these tender crops, because it has taken 12 weeks of nurturing from seed to get to this point. I choose gray days to harden the plants as I do not want sunburn. I choose days above 45 degrees with or without chances of rain.
It takes three gallons of water a day to keep the soil moist and the crops growing. I must admit that I am bothered by thinning. I just seems to me that if the plant sprouted from seed… Nature verses Nuture.
