Almost Ready to Plant


Although the oak leaves are the size of little mouse’s ears, we are still going to get some very cool weather this week. Our average high this time of year should be 70 degrees. Today it won’t reach 60 and tomorrow it might not reach 45.

It’s a bit easier to understand why I joke about “winter and July” being the 2 seasons in Connecticut. Or, as Mark Twain used to say, the coldest winter he ever spent was his summer in Connecticut.


These lovely looking tomatoes are now indoors on my glassed in sun porch. No point in setting them back who knows how long by keeping them out in 40 degrees!

Memorial Day is usually warm enough to plant around here–although the way things are going this year, I may have to wait until July 4th!

    Summer in Connecticut? What? Wasn’t that San Francisco?

    We’ve seen the sun 2 days in a row–with some rain thrown in just in case we forgot what that looked like. Tomorrow they say it might hit 80 degrees with a thunderstorm. Summer is here–until winter returns, briefly, of course, in early June, as it always does to confuse the heat loving plants.
