That’s what we are going to be planting next month. You want to know why? There is no way our gardens will be thaw and dried out and warm by the end of May. See….a new 12” of snow last night. 1-5” more coming. And to think just last week we were starting to dry out and see patches of grass here and there.

Today, since all the schools around me have been closed so that means no bussing (and today is the day I drive for two different schools plus had an activity, guess not) I’m going to transplant my tomatoes. They are getting very leggy.

My peppers aren’t doing well at all so will probably be replanting them in a couple of weeks. These, well we’ll see how it goes.

I’m also going to clean house but first have to go out and do the chores and start a fire. I suppose shovel some snow though I said yesterday I didn’t care how much it snowed I was not going to shovel anything any more but the chickens can’t get out of their coop.

I hope you all are having a great day. This wasn’t an expected day but will enjoy it and the quietness and get some stuff done. Take care and have a blessed morning.

My neighbor in Tucson is from Minnesota and is planning to return next week. She was hoping the weather would improve before she arrived. I think she will be disappointed.

I've given up on seedlings. I just buy a pack of them from the nursery because mine never come out right. :) We're warm today (70's) but it's going to drop back to the 40's for the high tomorrow. It's hard to remember what season we're in!

Oh wow!! And people here are complaining about the colder weather. I should tell them to count their blessings. :) I'll pray you get some sun. At least tomatoes can be planted deep. :)

It is cool and rainy here today but at least there is no snow. I hope yours melts soon so you can get your garden going.
