Went back to the garden center near here, told the owner my squash and cucumbers died. He gave me new ones along with some eggplant, broccoli, and zucchini. The other row of snow peas are coming up now, and I replanted the snap bean seeds. I think the cold nights are over, it's been in the low 50's with daily highs in the mid 70's and sunshine. Before long it will be in the 90's here every single day and lows in the 60's. UGH.

Glad you got new ones.

Today I picked up 12 new tomato plants to replace the sad looking waterlogged ones in my garden.

Tomorrow I will replace those replace some of the cucumbers with new seeds. I am watching to see if my bush bean seeds pop...if not I will plant more of those. Oh yeah...and I can get my squash and other zucchini plant in the ground. I think the torrential rain is over<<<crossing fingers>>>

I use a lot of tarragon, both fresh and dried.....you cant grow real French tarragon here, but this is a good substitute.

I'm not going to France to grow the real stuff. Meanwhile I'm watching those worms. They are sure confused.

LOL you are so funny.

Kshegirl, the peas sound so wonderful! I planted like 10 pea plants, but I'm still waiting for peas. I'll try planting some in Autumn to see if they'll come up early in the Spring. I honestly don't ever remember tasting tarragon, but it all sounds delicious.

I thought I was in deep fertilizer but after much searching I found the escaped worm. Going to put them in a large plastic peanut butter jar and feed them tomato prunings just to see what they will look like as adults. I was on the verge of a cardiac episode knowing that tomorrow my wife my stumble into the beast.
