Summer is coming, and if this weather doesn't shape up, we won't be doing anything fun.  Either that or we'll spend time planning to do it, then not actually getting to.  Memorial day is the unofficial start of summer, and is a week away.  So far, it's been in the 50's and 60's all week with unending rain.  Not at all weather you would think is leading into the start of summer.

This weekend we have a birthday party, and hopefully planting our garden.  This year instead of buying seedlings, we started most of our plants a couple weeks ago as seeds.  So far everything has shown promise except the peppers.  I read online they need consistent soil temps in the 70's, and obviously that's not happening.  We did buy some seedlings last week and planted them, because the basil was looking pot-bound.  So already in we have cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, zucchini, basil, and celery.  Waiting to go in are Sugar snap peas, green beans, cucumbers, lettuce, broccoli, and marigolds to keep the bugs away.
