Ugly Duckling

The vegetable garden. It is the "in between" time of year.

Just cool enough for some things like lettuce, mustard, spinach (seeds and plants) and broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower transplants if you can still find them. Still picking the cabbages from the garden. They are beautiful.

The warmer bright sunny days make you want to get the rest of the garden going.

It's not warm enough yet for beans, squash, or even tomatoes. You must get those tomato plants when you find them now as they will not last long. Pot them up into one gallon containers so you can get a jump on the season before the heat sets in.

Tom has been been cleaning the garden, adding compost and tilling. Somethings are still producing and the freshly tilled soil is a great blank canvas ready for those warmer days ahead.

Is your garden in the ugly duckling stage?
