Weather has been odd this year. I only planted a little of my garden and I keep covering the seedlings with leaves. The rest of the plants I keep on the back deck and I have to take them inside once a week to protect them from hard freezes. I keep thinking the cold weather is going to be over but it just keeps freezing. A while back I sprouted some sweet potatos for slips and the slips are ready to plant out, but there is still snow on the ground. Most year the frosts would be over a couple of weeks ago.
