End of the World?
Grape fruiting spurs on severely hard pruned grape 'Othello'. Pruning in this way in the spring increasing the energy put into fruiting buds which form closer to the main axials.
Tomatoes 'Roma' and OP sweet red peppers grown from seed harden off in the shade of my mesh wrought iron deck table before being planted in the garden. During hardening off, young plants should be placed in a protected spot for a few days and kept watered.
End of the world today? Is that on your day planner? Like most gardeners, I believe planting seeds is the ultimate belief there will be a tomorrow. And while there may be rapture, it will probably be of a different sort, more connected to blooms and growing things.
