Late late Spring

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.
