I am so tempted

I know better, I won't do it, but it is so tempting. I won't plant the garden until the end of May, that is when the last freeze is common around here. But as soon as the first Spring flowers start to bloom, I fight the urge. A problem for you also/

I don't know that we are going to be planting a garden this year. However, it is something that I do get anxious to do as soon as the buttercups start to bloom. I also do know that would not be a very intelligent idea to do because the buttercups are blooming here and yet it is supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow. This year is definitely a very weird winter for us. I will be so happy when spring is actually here to stay for us this year.

We have been having adverse weather conditions, I can't remember the last time we had snow so late in March! Usually by the end of February we've seen the last of the snow, but here we are nearly in April and everywhere is white! Normally I'd be out mid March seeing to the garden, but so far this year I haven't been out once, no point planting with this unpredictable weather!

I am too busy to be tempted this year. I am dying to put my houseplants outside, though. It has not been warm enough here this year to tempt me.April and May are good times to plant in this area.

I have forgotton what that is like as I plant all the year round where I live. Some crops planted on large scale teneded to be planted at different times of the year but the temperature does not change much and the rainy season no longer exists really. It rains any old time now instead of certain times of the year.

We are starting Autumn here, friend. We have a mild Winter where I live so I just planted some lettuce, chicory and kale seeds in containers while I get my late Summer harvest. Tomatoes will have to be eaten as green fried now because they will not ripen. The only thing I have to do with Winter produce is to put a sort of plastic roof to stop morning frost from hurting them.

Nope, not tempted here! The crocuses are up but we're expecting 4-8" of snow tomorrow with sleet and rain.

Fortunatly we have mild winters here and I can satisfy my planting urges with wwinter crops such as lettuce and kale.I started last week some lettuce and I look at them every day to see if I can do an experiment and transplant the seedlings to a container so that I can take better care of them until they go to their last home.
