Little cucumber is still growing, and 2 cabbage plants now each have their own 3 gallon pot! hope I can keep them going till outdoor planting time!---I usually always have a head of cabbage to give Virginia on her B-day (June 24'th)---This year has began late with no end in sight so everything is going to be very late here for us! Did get a flat of cabbage started for the main crop and now they are in the third and fourth leaf stage, so that might be pushing it for that flat! Have been trying to get some of the equipment ready but its almost too cold to work much outside on it!---Still have the big ole' mess of brush in the front garden to clean up!--got the 3 big trees cut down away from the house before they fell on the house!--- I got a REAL mess!!!
I have 11 more soil tests to do and its too muddy to get samples from the gardens right now!
have been working on wicks in 5 kerosene heaters getting them ready for next winter!---(people give me their old heaters when the wicks mess up and go buy new heaters)---wicks are getting kinda costly now days but what hasn't gone up or gotten hard to obtain!
Have any of you started seed flats yet??? thanks; sonny

Normally, our flats would have been planted around March first. Since there is still a foot of snow covering 80% of the yard, I haven't started yet. This is probably a very good time to get started because this spring is running a bit late.

Last year my garden got pummeled by hail after memorial day. All the leaves were stripped off the plants and punctured. Unusual, and really set it all behind. Hoping for better results this year.

Your plants are looking great!
