Here are some of the seeds I’ll be planting today. Just seeing all that lovely produce inspires me to get out there and weed and till!
Currently the garden is little more than a 50 foot square spot of dirt choked with weeds and overgrown with Jerusalem artichokes in one corner. The area will quickly transform, with my exertions, into a fenced spot of fresh earth marked with rows of newly sown seed.The spring has been cool and dry, again. Chance of frost still exists, but I’m willing to get started now. Tomorrow’s forecast is rainy, perfect for jump-starting plants. Next week I will put the tender tomato and pepper seedlings in the ground.
By the first week of June we should be safe from frost. Yesterday was 86F, with lots of sun. Today is cloudy and mid-fifties. The weather is so changeable in Maine in spring that it doesn’t do to take something like last frost dates for granted.
