Growing "warm season" vegetables in cold climates
I have a vivid memory of seeing foldable glass protectors over squash and cucumber seedlings in England. They were apparently meant to provide a bit of “greenhouse” warmth for what I’d grow as a warm season vegetable in the Southeastern U.S.
Growing tomatoes there — well, that was a greenhouse endeavor, as far as I could tell.
|I loved this small greenhouse full of tomatoes in a rectory garden.|
Here in Quebec, I’m musing about how folks manage to grow any tomatoes or peppers. I guess you’re hoping for a heat wave in July and August.
These are lovely temperatures for outdoor activities, but not particularly squash, tomato, cucumber, or basil-friendly!
