I looked up last year's post and saw that I had waited an extra week to start the garden. The medium-range forecast seemed to be pointing towards warm weather, so I decided to get a jump on planting. I'm doing more things from seed this year. Yesterday I put in 2 mounds of zucchini, 2 mounds of cucumber, 2 rows of green beans, and 2 rows of "Mexi-corn." I never had any luck growing sweet corn, but a friend gave me seeds from Mexico. Perhaps they would be more tolerant to heat and drought. *shrugs* We'll see. Tomorrow I'll go get some tomato and pepper seedlings. That should be it for the year. Of course many updates will follow.
