What a Difference A Week Makes

Last week, cold and snowy. Today it was 60 degrees when we woke up. The hoop houses are consistently getting into the upper 70's when the sun is out and aren't dropping below 40 at night. The starts won't go out this weekend, probably next weekend. One of the larger Tabasco peppers was the first occupant. It will stay in a pot and can be moved inside if needed.
The other big news, we have something growing in the garden. The garlic has come up. The squirrels "moved" a few but must not have a taste for them.
I know garlic breaks ground early and is pretty hardy, but it is the middle of February.
We are off to Vegas for the weekend. Hopefully it is still warm when we get back.
