Growing Green: Planting Trees

Email

This spring has come in fits and starts, and I wonder if it will ever be warm enough to plant my garden. My early season vegetable planting has been put on hold, and the tomatoes and peppers are little more than 2” seedlings. You want the night time air temperature to beat at least 50º, and the soil temperature to reach 60º-70º to have the best success with these crops. What to do until then?  Plant a tree!
