Am a little worried because the weather has not changed much from Winter except for the absence of snow. On the radio this morning, the weather forecaster said the temperature today is normally what we would have for the first day of March, not the first day of May!
It’s been raining all week since Monday. It would have been an ideal time to plant as the ground is wet if the temperature is milder.
At this time, my former garden would have been busy with early Spring plants blooming. I look at Benny’s garden and except for a clump of daffodils, the other plants are slowly waking up from their Winter slumber. I say “Benny’s garden” because he was the one who toiled hard to turn their backyard into a garden. Benny was my friend’s late husband. And now, am trying to turn his flower garden into a mix with vegetables.
Benny would have already planted seeds a month ago. I haven’t even received yet the ones I ordered last week. Might as well as the weather has been cold. This side of the world or Zone 5, the ideal time for planting is after Mother’s Day which will be on May 11th. Am late but if the weather remains this cold, then am in luck but that means we’ll have a short plant season.
The Asian vegetables I want to plant thrives on hot and humid temperature. From seed to the vegetables’ peak period, I probably would have only four months left.
I am glad that I have bought 4 Hungarian pepper seedlings which I planted this morning. At least I have something growing and checking twice each day.
For now they are my babies!
