off to a late start this year

Post  bbbevey on 6/23/2013, 9:43 am

My garden is off to a very late start this year.  Rain, cold temps, other obligations (grass seeding) late getting my seeds started. We are finally getting some sun and warmer night temps. The larger tomato plants are from my brother who I think starts his seeds the day after Christmas.Rolling Eyes

But, what will be, will be Very Happy

Many gardeners started late due to the long, cold, white winter, especially in the northeast.
Better late than never.  Enjoy the bounty.

Most of my garden is planted, but for a couple of things--plus some 'succession' planting.
As long as you have something to grow and enjoy; that's what counts!Smile

I think you're in good company, bbbevey. My garden isn't much further along than yours; in fact, I think mine may be behind yours.

Like others have already said, the weather hasn't been accommodating, and TIME never is. Wink

bbb, your tomato plants are clearly way ahead of mine. Good job!

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
