Porch Update

Today is the last frost date for Boston, but I think this year we might be a little late. I needed to get some living space back and get some of the plants out of the house and onto the porch, but I'm still a little worried about frosts. I'd been putting the plants out during the day, but the wind we've been having recently was doing some damage to them so I needed to find a solution that would allow everything to be outside, but not be damaged by the wind.

Enter the pop-up greenhouse! Fairly inexpensive, variable sizes and is perfect for protecting from frost and wind! This little guy showed up when I was starting to finally feel better last week and provided that extra boost to make me healthy again.

He's set up on our porch and is currently holding the kale, blueberries, carrots & spinach, and the lettuce. All the plants have been really happy inside, but I am sure to open the door every morning so that it doesn't get too hot.

  1. It seems awfully early for the last frost date in Boston, unless the city is really much warmer than outlying areas. The last frost date down here in Delaware is as late as May 10th depending on different resources. I would keep a sharp eye on the forecast for those things that might be tender.
