Last Spring was the coldest wettest Spring on record. This Spring is worst. April 19 is the average date of last frost in this area. This year we had a hard frost on May 10. This on top of record-breaking rainfall. Now, however, real Spring has started like someone threw a switch. Day-time temperatures are hovering around 80 and sunshine is forecast every day for the next week. Now that the soil is dry enough it is a real race to get the garden planted. Anticipating that planting date would be late, I started a lot of plants in pots in my greenhouse. This includes cucumbers, summer and winter squash varieties and even corn. Here is one of my darling baby cucumber seedlings.
