I guess I picked a great vacation week.
80s-90s in May in Maine is quite uncommon. Mid-60s is normal for us this time of year. The past 3-days it was hot! Today temperatures reached 90 and I found it almost impossible to work outside in the garden. We were sweltering and had to put in a few window air conditioners in for general comfort. By 7 pm Wednesday evening, everything changed. The wind shifted, the sky became slightly overcast, and the temperatures dropped down to mid-50s as the sun went down.
Tomorrow is predicted to be much more comfortable and I am looking forward to planting out my tomato, pepper, melon, cucumber, basil, and eggplant seedlings over the next couple of days. The seedlings have been hardening off the last week or so, I think they are ready to be on their own in the garden.
