I skipped last week’s post. I’d like to say it was because I was in the garden. I was, some. Memorial Day weekend for us is typically cool and rainy, and this was no exception. It’s also a big gardening weekend. The tomatoes go in, now that we’re “safely” past the frost. We’ve got such a short season that delaying past Memorial Day means possibly no harvest.
This year Memorial Day was early and the season late. I order my plants from a company in Oregon. (Hoping that they’ll be climate ready when they arrive, which isn’t true if I order from a company in New Mexico!) I finally called them, seeing no sign of the plants “shipping date May 15th” I was wondering if they’d received my order! Apparently they are having unseasonable weather along with the rest of the country. The plants aren’t ready to be shipped.
Part of me appreciates the extra time. I’ve made comments about recovering my gardens from years of neglect. I won’t get it done this year, but I am making slow progress. One of my Facebook friends commented that she wanted to see photos – so that’s what this post is really about.
Hopefully my plants will arrive soon and I’ll have tomatoes before September!
