May 15th is supposed to be the last spring frost date, which means I should feel free to plant my garden any time after that date. Unfortunately, it has been cool and rainy. Heck, even my furnace keeps coming on occasionally. What the heck is up with that? Sigh.
My tomato plants arrived today. I guess they are going to have to bide their time inside the house for right now, because I don’t think they would be happy outside. I have all my garden seeds now. I’m only planting a few things. I like a lot of green beans, so I have plenty of seeds for them. It’s just me I am growing for, but I put green beans and tomatoes up if I have enough. Hopefully I will.
In addition to tomatoes and green beans, I am going to plant summer squash, bush pickling cucumbers (hate cucumbers, love pickles – go figure), and beets. I’ll have to see how much room I have for everything once I can start planting. I already know that I’m going to put the tomato plants at the back of the garden because I think they will get the most sun back there, but the rest of the garden is up for grabs. I’ve gardened long enough not to have to plan out every inch of the garden and just lay it out as I go along. As long as I know what I’m planting and how it grows, I should be good. Now if only this damn weather would cooperate.
