It seems that out in this area, Mother's Day weekend is also plant your garden weekend. I wish I knew that in March when I started most of my plants in the house. I'm a desert rat and it seemed like the right time to start the seeds to me. Anyway, my seeds, of course, really took off. The tomatoes are about 18" tall, the peas have wrapped themselves around the tomatoes. My spaghetti squash, zucchini and cucumbers have tendrils intertwined in the venetian blinds and have blossomed. We have green onions and garlic in big flower pots in the living room. The way things are going, I won't have to go far to harvest anything and the deer won't eat them in the house. Everything goes out this weekend. I still have more onions to plant along with potatoes, carrots, radishes lettuce, etc. We had planned on a large garden because, I'm sure, we will also be feeding the white tail deer that come around. There's a lot to learn about living in a snow globe world. Knowing my luck, it will probably snow on Monday.
