windy weather

The weather has been wild this weekend. The temperature dropped about 10 degrees within a hour yesterday, and the wind howled all night, and is still howling.

I bought some arugula and rainbow chard at Dark Hollow Farm yesterday and planted them just before the weather went crazy. I would have planted some tomatoes – it’s good that I didn’t because this wind would have blown away the cold frame I was going to set up. I can’t do it tomorrow because of class. How frustrating! I want to get them in the ground, but it is just too wet and windy. Maybe Tuesday afternoon. The time changed today so I’ll have some extra daylight.
