The last frost date for this area is May 15th. Both last year and this year, we have had 2 frosts after this date. =) I am glad I am behind a bit on my garden. It was really easy to pick up my flats of plants and bring them in.
So far I have cabbage, lettuce, onions and tomatoes planted. I planted the tomatoes today. I have 20 paste tomato plants, 5 Early Girl, 5 Better or Big Boy (I can’t remember which), 2 grape tomatoes and 3 cherry tomato plants. I also have a border of flowers planted. I still have all my peppers to plant. I bought red, yellow, orange and green bell peppers, jalapenos and banana peppers. Then I have corn, beans, beets, pumpkins and my squash to plant. The garden is much smaller this year. I usually go WAY over board and have plenty to share. It is fun to be out in the garden though, because it is right beside the sheep pasture. I love to watch the baby lambs all playing together. There are 5 in there right now. One more will join them next week.
Here are some signs of spring around here. I love my bleeding heart. I have planted about 4 of them and the dogs dug them all up. This time I planted in a barrel planter and it is doing wonderful. The only thing though it is taking over the barrel and the other plants are being crowded out. Maybe since it has gotten so big, I can transplant it and have it live.
