We have our garden underway so far as cool weather plants. This past week we planted the onions and broccoli Linda started from seed and direct seeded the sugar snap peas and chard. Planted the tomatoes she started from seed in the greenhouse today. We'll have to watch forecast lows and turn the propane heater on nites when it gets too cold. The beans, zuchinni, etc will have to wait another 3 weeks because at 5800 ft summer is slow arriving here.

Update: w/ all the rain we've been getting I finally got enough dry spells in between storms to plant the beans, squash and corn last week and got the cukes and cantaloupe planted yesterday. Now just sit back and hope they all grow well.
