Update on the Cold Frame Plants

One Day's Bounty 2009

Today was a work the cold frame day, the squash were pushing on the lid wanting out so they got planted, one in the garden and one in a big pot in front of the garage. That is my insurance plant, against one husband that tends to run over plants he see’s no earthly reason for, such as squash, rhubarb, asparagus or flowers of any kind. Now tomatoes, cucumbers and horseradish can take up 2/3 rds of the garden and that is fine but those other things are just a nuisance, something to have to till around. For the life of me I can’t figure out why it bothers him to watch me till around them! Being a woman I figure out how to get my way most of the time. Some of the cabbage and more volunteer giant sunflowers got planted also. We have had so much wind it isn’t going to help the garden any, but as long as we don’t get a late frost they should make it. Can you taste the radishes yet, we had our first taste yesterday. I planted some giants this year and couldn’t wait for them to get giant size so I picked some that were normal size and amazed the neighbors, what they don’t know won’t hurt them. Hey, it’s one more notch in that gardener of the year award. The tomatoes are finely coming on. Everything else is growing great and will get transplanted next weekend most likely. Then later this summer I will plant carrots and parsnips in the cold frame for a winter crop. I haven’t tried that before so we will see how that turns out. Any ideas or suggestions out there?
