It’s back to the wild North Texas weather again. Rain. Wind. Thunderstorms. Mud. Back to 40°F temperatures. Pollen galore.
And it’s not even consistent across the metroplex. A coworker mentioned that there was some sort of snow-like ice pelt-y thing that wasn’t hail landing on her front lawn. She didn’t even know what to call it. At dinner tonight with some friends, the husband mentioned snow in Oklahoma.
Yet today was the first day my favorite nursery had tomato plants. Go figure.
Spring comes shockingly early in North Texas. Spring bulbs are already poking through the soil. Our daffodils are already 3-4 inches out. There are buds on the peach and plum trees. I’ve seen a neighbor’s tree with big pink flowers in full bloom. In February. Tomorrow it will be 66°F.
I still can’t get used to it.
However, I’m not complaining. My plan still is to pick up eight lovely tomato plants either Friday night after work or on Saturday morning and get them in the dirt on Sunday. Don’t worry, I’ll keep the frost cloth handy.
I live about 190 miles west of Dallas near Lawton, Oklahoma and it’s still at least 60 days until we will be fairly secure that we won’t have another hard frost.
Happy spring planting.
Your weather is totally psycho. I think it would drive me nuts. Especially because I’m already more than halfway there 🙂
I’m still learning new words, such things as “frost cloth” 😀
