I seem to have an ant hill forming under my zucchini. I’ll need to put down some ant killer and I hope it doesn’t harm the plants.

Temps in the the mid to high 60s today, no more talk of freezes for the year so today is the day: I will get my tomato plants and pepper plant in the ground and will take the little seedlings that I have been babying since Feb and put them out as well. I lost some of them, mostly lack of enough sun light. Now it seems like spring might actually be here.

I have 3 little yellow squashes on my plants, and blossoms on the pepper plants. So far, so good.

Like a world away you are. Soil temp struggling past 50F here and we don't even have trees with leaves on them let alone anything growing in the garden. Not only we just had the Coldest 2nd half of April since 1800s but we had the coldest April max temp on record. Never passed 65° here this month.


I got this going on every day and evening like its November

Its May now, so its that time of year! Garden Pics will be incoming. Planting of lettuce and chard has commenced!


Rototilled the Garden last weekend





Added new shiny Garden Stepping stones this year, and planted Lettuce and Swiss Chard. Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers, beans, squash, and hot peppers are all still inside until late May.

I feel your pain, April was -6F below average. I've used so much wood this year too


Still very brown here.

We're doing nothing.

Indoor pepper plant failing. We can plant beans later, but now there are no seedling available for purchase. I wanted at least one tomato, one pepper.

I noticed auto parts are in big demand and seeds!


I was wondering where Ray went and he just posted a video. He has a "little shop" of seeds he sells for 55 cents. He said he typically gets like 20 orders a day but he got hundreds so he wasn't uploading videos because of the demand for the seeds.


I guess everyone is into gardening this year.
Sorry to hear about your peppers

You have 5-7 days to think about how to protect your sensitive plants. Arctic blast coming.
