To Transplant or Just Wait to Plant it in the Garden
May 13, 2016 9:41am CST
The seedlings I started about 2 months ago are doing quite well. Now they are looking a bit gangly. Not sure if I should transplant them into larger pots. This of course means the added expense of purchasing more potting soil. I do need to pot up a few so we can bring them to my husband's aunt and uncle. I promised them a few. The old farmers believe that you should wait until after Memorial Day to plant your garden. This is to avoid the possibility of getting a frost that will kill the seedlings. I have had that happen a time or two. Once was after Memorial Day when we got an unexpected freeze. Most of my plants were killed and I had to start over. My husband is in a fired up hurry to get the garden started. I worry about frost. We did have one this week. If we had planted early as he so wished we would have lost everything. Hopefully my husband will be able to get the garden spot ready for planting. Perhaps we will get it going next week if the weather permits.

@ElusiveButterfly we never got around to the garden of pots, dont know if we will this year. I'd do alot more if I didnt work full time. If hubby finds a job, my goal is to eventually go to part time, so I can help pay for setting up again (we may have to move several states over), and then have something like that

Here the farmers are worried that the seeds they planted will not grow because there is a frost warning out for tonight. I know some farmers haven't planted their crops yet and that may be a good thing for them. Let's hope the weather is good everywhere the next few days.
