I got a late start to my seeds this year. Usually they are busting out of their little pots by the time April comes along, this year at the time I usually plant out they were still fairly tiny. But then we had frosts late and by the time I could actually plant them out they were outgrowing their pots once again. The lettuce, spinach and radishes are feeding us daily. The peas are almost 2 ft tall and full of blossoms. The tomatoes- all 38 plants so far planted- are growing nicely. I have about 15 small, late planted tomatoes left to put out. But I need it to stop raining. We've been having a lot of rain. Which is good. But lots at one time and severe thunderstorms, not to mention the tornado last month that ripped apart homes about 2 miles from mine....I would like the atmosphere to calm down just a bit.
Last week we got the cucumbers, zucchinis, okra and edamame in the ground. They boys helped plant the flower bed- which is more of a wild sprinkling of seeds: cosmos, flax, morning glory, marigold, sunflower and a few more I am sure. Most of these are saved from the year before.
This was [part] of our dinner Tuesday night. I wish I had more pictures to show, I had planned to go out last night and take a couple, but we sat in our hall way from about 4 pm on last night with one tornado warning after another until close to midnight. If I ever hear my town take cover on the news that many times again it will be too soon. So later once it's clear I will go out and make sure my garden/yard held up in the hail and wind.
