Vegetable Garden 2011 – #2
I feel like I’m in a time warp. Or maybe like the movie “Groundhog Day”. You know.. the one where you wake up and it is the same as the previous day. It has been like that all Spring. You wake up and it is still gray, cold and drizzly. You know it is bad when it is mid June and you can count the days that have gotten over 70 on one hand.
I didn’t realize how bad it was until I’ve started comparing garden pictures from the previous years. We are 4 weeks behind 2009 and 2010. Take a look at these pictures:

Vegetable Garden 2009 #2 – May 18, 2009
I think we’re just about the same stage as we were mid-May the previous years. Here is where the garden should be.

G did plant the beans out this week and we may be able to harvest some lettuce soon. But if we continue this cold, it will be a poor year for a tomato harvest.
Here’s where we are this week.
I know how you feel, Marta! Just change 70 to 80 and I’m in the same shape. I do envy you that glorious lettuce though — if I’d only known what the spring would be like, I’d have planted some myself!
