My BIL had a dozen broccoli plants left over, so tilled a short section & transplanted them. Early, but broccoli is cold tolerant, and I'll get early veggies too! Gonna pick up about 24+ more plants end of this week. Pics when I get others transplanted.

All I have done so far is dump a load of horse manure on mine and tilled it in........We can't plant annuals until June 1......Too much of a chance of frost before that. I do some seeding in May.

I can't believe the weather differences between us and you guys up north. When does it start to cool down for fall weather up there?

There is a good chance of frost by the end of Sept........Makes for a short growing season......One crop of each item......May get some late beans etc if you time it right. They do a lot in greenhouses around here.......

May have frost here Saturday morning. Been in high 80's the last 3 days or so, Friday will barely hit 60. Low in mid to upper 30's Saturday morning. Good thing is broccoli is cold tolerant.

I've been wanting to set the tomato plants, outside, that I have growing under a plant light in my basement. I'm glad I didn't, because I just had to turn the furnace back on. It's 34 degrees here this morning!!!!
