We haven't really even HAD spring. It has been cold. And it's been wet. And it's been COLD. And it's been WET. And then it warms up a day or two. And then it snows again (yes, we had snow last Wednesday, April 24th). Yesterday it was 81 degrees. Today it is 51 and raining.
Our garden is way behind. I mean WAY behind. We have a few onions out, and some lettuce and that's it. And the lettuce isn't coming up yet. I can't think of a year where we have ever planted anything in May. 'Cause my Grandpa always told me "you can't plant in a month that doesn't have an 'r' in it." And May doesn't have an 'r'.
So here's what we planted yesterday. Corn. (AND FOR THE LIFE OF ME I CAN'T GET THIS PICTURE TO GO IN HERE ROTATED TO THE LEFT???)
First we had to till the garden.
Hard to believe that in a few weeks there will be little shoots of corn coming up out of the ground. That is, if it dries up and warms up.
Oh, and in case you're wondering . . . it's raining again right now.
And it's COLD. COME ON SPRING!!!!!
