We have finely reached that magic 60 degrees night time temperatures to allow planting summer garden seed. This year we are running almost three weeks later than normal. Most years we are having 60 degree nights by the 2nd or 3rd week of April. Fingers crossed, I will wait 5 to 7 days to see how many seeds germinate!
Early this morning I tilled my Tiny Garden spot reserved for cucumber, summer squash and tomato seeding. Grinning, I have managed to get most of the seeds into the ground before winds picked up to the point that it is blowing my seed away before I can get them covered up! If the wind dies down a bit late today I will finish planting two rows of cucumbers and a few Mammoth sunflowers for show and tell with my great grandson and my city dwelling grand daughter!
A few Zucchini survived the wind and hail storm we suffered last week, but, my onions and garlic have not recovered very well. It’s to late to replant onions and garlic but, I will put in a new crop of garlic this October for summer harvest next summer.
Pinto’s are on the stove, cornbread with a little bit of Basil added to the mix is in the oven. Time to kick back under the AC, kick the dog out of the way and drink an adult beverage. Happy Mothers Day.
Why is common sense so uncommon?
