Here is a great read from our friends over on Home Grown New Mexico from Mike Warren. It is on ‘The Persephone Period’ What is the Persephone period? It is about winter, the short days in this season and the amount of light plants need to grow. Even though the shortest day of the year is upon us and the days will start getting longer, it is still too soon to start planting outside or even in greenhouses or hoophouses. Be sure to read the article about this interesting time we are in right now.
