This is the time of year when those of us in northern climates begin to experience garden envy. Those in warmer climates begin posting images of fresh cucumbers and zucchini while our meager plants are just beginning to show some real growth.
I'd be lying if I said they didn't make my mouth water, or that my heart doesn't sink ever-so-slightly when I see their pictures. But, it is what it is and we will be harvesting fresh veggies here in my part of Maine in a few weeks.
My new raised beds (from scrap wood) are looking good. I am hopeful that they will produce well. It's been a strange spring here in Maine. My garden got a late start, most of the peas rotted in the soil and I had to replant my cucumbers. I posted earlier about having too many pea seeds and planting some under a tree. Well, those peas came fine, so I just tried transplanting some of them to the garden.
I don't know how well they will do - or even if they will survive being transplanted. I figured I had nothing to lose and everything to gain if they did well.
My morning glories are just beginning to climb, but they grow quickly, so I am sure they will cover the porch in no time.
Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
