Wow, the weather is so changing here. I know that the phrase of " Don't like the weather? Wait 15 minutes." is common here but yesterday was in the high 20's. This morning I was @ the garden, the sun was shining and it was HOT. I watered the bejebus out of the seedlings afraid they would die in the sun. Right now, 3 hours later, it's freeezing and overcast. I'm hoping they don't just keel over from the cold!!!!!

So far in the garden, I have carrot,onions,beets,peas,potatoes,parsnips and, thanks to my fellow community gardener in the next  plot, red cabbages. Tomorrow the kale, turnip greens,lettuce and broccoli will go in. This weekend, I hope to get the tomatoes and cucumbers planted in the green house. I'm so cautious about planting. I'm going to grow pumpkins and zucchini but I'm too afraid to put them out yet. Last year I lost the pumkin and zucchini plants to cold weather on the 3rd of July!! I'm just going to keep them in the greenhouse for another week or 2 and then listen to the local weather report everyday until the beginning of July. I've got some old sheets ready to cover them with if necessary.

PS:  5 minutes has passed since I started this post and now the clouds have blown away and it's sunny again. ARG! I love it here but this weather drives me around the bend!!!!
