After snow and lows in the 20's last week, today was a warm 65 degrees and forecast this week is for highs in the 70's and lows in the 40's. I planted 200 onion sets today and will work on the rest of the garden this week (as my back permits). No tiller here, shovel and hoe. Garden will only be 20x40 this summer.

Lettuce is long done. I got one small bell pepper but looks like it'll be a long time before any of my chiles start giving.

There are a few tomatoes finally turning reddish on my Tumbling Tiger plants, which I'm sure the squirrels are eyeing already. I just added some cayenne to my soil to try to burn their greedy little tongues, but somehow those little pests usually win.

Most of the rest of the garden is flowers and herbs I harvest here and there, and a potentially nice size crop of potatoes in a few weeks.

we have nothing resembling true veggies yet but the tomato plants are finally growing and the herbs are doing ok,, not great but oK> This has been a very cool spring so didn't expect too much. The next month or so should tell the story. I am still depending on our local farmers market for fresh produce. Even they are struggling.

Nice to see you warmed up yesterday but sucks to hear farmers market are struggling too.


Over here I am closing in on 6" of rain for the month and still raining as I type. Tired of needing an umbrella. Plants haven't grown at all except during the 3 hot days. Rain and Cool here all month. May is so crucial to get the jump start. Oh well.

Ate the first ripe tomato on 5/20, never had one ripen so early, another ready in a day or so. Some of the tomato plants have topped the 5' concrete wire cages already. Started in a greenhouse, 1/31 and 2/21, planted 2nd week of April. Peppers have some size to them, but will be a couple of weeks before they are ready to pick.

It hasn't rained too hard the past two days so the little tomato seedlings on the windowsill have grown. They're probably ready to go outside but it's just going to be cold and rainy again tomorrow so I'm keeping them inside where it's warm and I can look after them.

Nasturtium seeds came up in pots inside but the outside ones must have drowned in all the rain. It's been an enjoyable month of cool temps but not fun for the plants at all.

I see my yellow squash is doing so much better than my zuccinni and I wonder why since they are grown under the same conditions . My tomatoes all have green tomatoes on them and I'm glad about that . I just cant wait for my first batch of squash . There is nothing better than the taste of a fresh vegetable straight out of the garden .
