Dont laugh all you zone 10, 9, 8, people! [Razz] Us cold Z5 people are just putting in seeds now! [Wink]
So I got in a bunch of tomatoes; brandeywine, oregon spring bush, san marzano, sun gold, supersweet 100 and some basil, parsley, and dill. Also moved my strawberries into the fenced in garden. The bean and zuccini seeds I had were very left over. I'll see in a week or two if I should go buy some plants instead! [dunno]
My friend in TX has been eating produce from her garden for weeks. She cant fathom that I'm just able to put things in the ground now.
We're supposed to have a very warm memorial day weekend so I'm hoping that will give everything a good get go.
Yay, finally! I cant wait for fresh from the garden dinners!

I don't!!!

Well, some are, some are still waiting..
This weather we've been having is soooooo cold here..
We had a frost warning about 6 days ago...
I do have some cuke's out, *with juice jug protextion* and radishes, chives, lettuce/romaine,
peas and pumpkins, water melons and cantaloupes, *they are also under juice jugs*
(but the slugs are having a field day with these wet and cool days).
Corn is going to be seeded today, and I just have to wait a bit more, *cause we're getting another cold front today and tomorrow and they said we should be out of the woods after that.*

Then I'll put in my tomatoes, peppers, assorted squashes, the rest after that...

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

Wrennie, Don`t feel bad I`m 1 1/2 states under you and I`m just getting it all done this weekend. We also had that touch of frost a few weeks ago as well. On thing you`ve got over most of us is this. Cold weather crops I`d bet grow GREAT out there like lettuce,cabbage,brussle sprouts and Brocculi among other things.

Wrennie I'm just finishing mine here in KS. I usually put in my last on Memorial day weekend. Usually have a great late crop that way. Best of luck. Jay
