Spring has been extra long this year, nights are still in the single digits and we had a frost warning on June 17, but most of the garden is in – seeds, transplants and weeds.
A few plantings on the weekend of May 31 (last year garden was in May 15) with the majority in on the June 7 weekend.
As a result of the extra long spring, a lot of my transplants went to leggy and were not healthy and a majority of tomatoes and cucumbers died. Luckily transplants are widely available and a quick trip to the Canadian Tire and some Maquires (sp?) greenhouses outside town we will have tomatoes and cucumbers.
The majority for the main gardens is geared towards winter storage/pickling. Lettuce and cooler/shade plants are in an area with shade vertical cucumber trellises to provide additional shade if the heat ever comes.
