Some of you have noticed that I haven’t done any garden posts this spring
It’s just too depressing.
You see – my seedlings are rather pathetic.
They were planted a little late, then it was so cold in the basement that we brought them up to Angel Girl’s room and put them in her windows.
Which was a good idea – except that it was so cloudy and overcast that they didn’t get the sun they needed.
I still thought they were doing okay – until I stopped at the Amish greenhouse for a few things and saw their plants.
Amish cauliflower on the left of the screen. My cauliflower on the right.
They also gave us a tomato plant.
Theirs is the one with actual tomatoes on it. Mine are the pathetic little ones with three tiny leaves and the spindly stem.
At least the tomatoes have a few more days to get bigger and harden off before they get planted.
The poor cauliflower and broccoli got planted directly in the garden. Poor things. I felt like I threw them right off the high board into the deep end.
Grow little plants! Grow!
Meanwhile the rest of the garden spot is looking more and more like a part of the lawn. Maybe when things settle down again we’ll get it tilled.
And the rains will come.
And the plants will grow.
And I will bask in all the luscious veggies.

I am in the same boat as you, without the weather to blame!
I am having a challenging garden year so far also. Dry and unexpected late cold and now jumped to hot. No in-between. Working in garden is on the list for this week for sure!
