I will never doubt the noted S. American 'Global Cooling' Thermodynamics Expert Alberto Gorez Again!

42 Degrees tonight, I wonder how my tobacco will hold up? I covered the nicest 2 or 3 of each variety, so I will cross my fingers. That's 10 degrees colder than the normal low. Doesn't the weather know that Global means EVERYWHERE on earth, and that WARMING means RISING TEMPERATURES?
:roll:
Global Warming you say? MAUNDER MINIMUM says 'Alberto Gorez', and he is as right today, as when he started warning the world of the Global Cooling, almost 2 decades ago.

Stay Toasty, because we are having HEATING DEGREE DAYS in the middle of May! I may have to fire my coal stove back up.

42 degrees right now, and amazingly the uncovered plants still look ok, same with my tomatoes.

So I marked all of my containers with an indelible marker, you know PERMANENT, as in never fades away.....uh huh.

Now I have 4 types, all unknown to me. Virginia Gold, TN Burley, Latakia, and Havana. Can you tell which is
which at this stage? Anyone care to take a stab at it? My neighbor said he never saw a white man who liked greens so much... :mrgreen:
I just laughed.

That being said, I think a bit of seasonal weather (WARMER), and these things explode. It's been highs in the low sixties, and lows in the mid forties.
My Yukon Gold potatoes already have blossoms...The Amish stop by and ask ME for gardening tips! 'What kind of manure are you using?'.....
I'll never tell....

Yes you DO have a lot of plants !
They really do look enthusiastic, too !!

PITB to get 'em all transplanted into the dirt, but I enjoy tending them as they get above knee-high.
Harvest time, as you get there, becomes quite a bit of work with 100 plants...
You will be having loads of fun !

Things are taking off, even though it has been ten degrees colder than normal all month.
