I don’t know where May went. But, if you see the month, can you tell it to call me?
Actually, I know where May went. It was a busy month. My husband and I got our garden in order, made some upgrades and now we have plants in the ground we check on daily to water and care for.
Going into gardening, we knew that each summer would not only bring fresh vegetables, but also a lesson or two. First lesson of this season: do not start seeds too early. With my basement grow lights, I started my seeds too early. They were outgrowing their pots before it was time to put them outside. (A cold spring didn’t help.) Next year, I’ll start later, but not as late as last year.
Even though some seedlings were looking a little iffy, we put them in the ground anyway. We also bought some tomato plants–our favorites coming from Ed’s just a few miles from us. (I’m convinced we never have to visit a big box hardware store for plants again!)
