Last year we had the hardest time getting tomato blooms to set fruit. The temperatures just were not warm enough until almost late June. Same thing the year before.
Here it is May 20th and we have tomatoes! Praise the Lord....
Of course with that heat we have not had rain in almost 2 weeks now and everything is sure getting dry.
Aren't we gardeners a fickle lot?
Too hot! Too cold! Too wet! Too dry! Too many bugs ! Too many weeds!
And remember our straw experiment with the potatoes? WE HAVE POTATOES!!
Aren't they pretty all snuggled down underneath that straw?
And so easy to get to!
And the green beans are blooming..
Lots of lettuce and mustard !
And we will have plenty of cabbage in our future I think.
Now if the summer garden does this well I will be happy.
