    41*F and light rain, which looks like it will hang around most of the day.

    It's supposed to be 82 F here today. If that doesn't bring my okra up, I may replant tomorrow. I planted the okra early right before a cold snap. Traditionally, okra is planted during the last two weeks of April or even May. It takes warm soil to germinate. Sometimes I can fudge by two weeks and get by, but this year my seed have remained dormant for over two weeks. I noticed only two seedlings peeking out of the ground yesterday. If it doesn't look like it's popping up by tomorrow, I'm gonna put fresh seed in the ground. I planted English sweet peas a little over a week ago and I think every single seed I planted has germinated. They are exploding up out of the ground. I'll have to be getting my trellis netting up soon. I bought some netting that's about 30' long and designed for vines to grow on. I'll experiment with that this year to see how it works. I suspect it will work fine, and the hardest part will be cleaning the vines off of it at the end of the season.

    I had to water the garden yesterday. We just can't get enough rain here, so I fear more drought conditions to come. I only planted my okra seed a week ago. I too am hoping the warm temps will make it happy, and get it to come up. Looks like every squash seed I planted is coming up, but even that took a couple of weeks. I'll be thinning the rows of that soon. Many of the tomato plants have tomatoes on the vine, some as big as a quarter! I just hope the cold front they are calling for later this week, isn't something to set the garden back, yet again. I think the weird weather is making germination take longer, this year.

    65* here, at 10:00. Should be a great day for gardening and other outdoor projects!

Good luck with your garden.
    thanks Jim. Peas, regular peas, went in today and the sugar snaps in later this week. What a gorgeous day out today. Got the rest of the strawberries planted, the entire garden rototilled, then we looked at all the potatoes and trays of other stuff like lettuce to plant, and we both said "tomorrow."

    I bought a flat of tomatoes in 6-packs (48 sets) a few weeks ago for $18.00. Today, we went to that same greenhouse for bedding flowers and they had all their vegetables on sale in any size pot for $10 a flat. They must have had at least 5000 tomato plants and 1500 pepper plants in flats. Those are just the ones in their sales area. They have many more in their wholesale sales areas. They also even have sets for watermelons, cantaloupe, beets, cucumbers, squash, etc. For somebody with a small garden who wants a headstart. The $10 per flat (mix-n-match) is an offer that's impossible to beat. All the plants are well cared for and healthy. You can't say that about big box store plants.
