My little seedlings are growing! And I’m about halfway through the period spent in hardening off the plants. After raising them indoors, I can’t just throw the little babes out into the cruel New York State world. They need time to acclimate to our cool days and very chilly nights. I’m hoping that by May 12th I can get these babies in the ground. You can see that the squash is already too big for its britches.
The threat of frost is still here, probably for another week. We did have frost last week, and some weathermen are calling for the chance of it this week. We had a hot start to our spring, and now we’re back to “spring” temperatures!
In the vegetable garden, the peas and spinach are just starting to show through the earth. I’ll snap a photo when they are larger.
