Months ago, I decided to start my garden early this year. I thought I could outsmart the weather. I had squash and cucumber starts in my window in February!
Then came the wettest Spring on record, complete with an April 15th snowfall. My super-early transplants survived the snow but got eaten by wet-loving slugs and I ended up with nothing. Zip. Nada. Bupkis.
So much for rushing things.
But now it is mid-May, and weeks of mostly sunny weather are predicted. So, back to the nursery and we’ll try this again!
Fortunately, Portland Nursery is there for me. Auntie Bridgett drove me down and after getting side-tracked by cool sculptures and Fairy Moss, we picked out five different organic cherry tomato plants, a Delicata squash, some dahlias and a begonia.
We delivered them to the garden, went home for lunch, and back to the garden for the digging fun! More about that tomorrow.
