We had snow flurries all day today. This cold weather won't leave! I am wondering if my tomatoes are going to flower before I get them in the ground! I really need to get them out of my house, they are getting big!

Looks good!

Yeah, isn't funny how you just can't stop buying more plants and seeds and growing more and more! The bf laughs at me. But he says its better that I get obsessed with having the latest cool veggie seeds than a coach pocketbook or something. Much cheaper for him too!

I woke up this morining and saw snow falling at my house, too. Why is it that the rest of the nation seems to have relatively mild weather while those of us in certain parts of California are still dealing with snow?

Thanks Nomad!

I love spinach. But we all decided we hate arugula!

Radishes are looking good, but not big enough to pick.

Peas look good but I have no pods yet...

It's so nice to see so many of my CD friends in here!!!

Gue, your garden looks wonderful. Thanks to the rains that we've had this year in S.C. Texas, it looks like we might actually have a productive garden this year.

Will keep you posted!!!

LOL We seem to have bad weather like this every 5-6 years. 2004 or 2005 was a pretty cold year. We didn't plant much until the first weekend in June. We are up in Northeastern CA. My son's little league game was snowed out today, lol. Its crazy!

I'm in the mountains just south of the south end of the San Joaquin Valley, and we had more snow again today, though not very much (~1/2 to 1 inch). The problem is that I have some tomato and pepper plants to get into the ground, but I don't want them to die because of the freezing weather.

Usually, it's safe to plant things after Mother's day, but there have been several times since I've lived here that we've had snow in June. This could end up being another one of those years.

Wow, and here we are 89 degrees. At least our garden is going strong including the grass in the garden..

I have a zillion volunteer tomato plants along with the 12 I planted. I will be anxious to see if the volunteers do anything..

We had 2 inches of snow Saturday!! Looks like the holiday weekend will be warming with Monday almost up to normal. Should allow us to get seeds into the garden (lettuce, greens, potatoes, herbs, zucs). By the time they sprout, we should have more stable weather. The tomatoes, cucs, and peppers are up and growing in pots. They won't go in until mid June. Before that, its too risky. Thankfully hard freezes are uncommon until mind October around here.

By next year we should have a everything in place to be able to plant earlier, but right now the beds aren't even full of soil yet! I have a lot of shoveling to do this weekend. Then extend the drip irrigation. Constructing supports for plastic sheeting to cover the plants in the early and late season come next.
