Now What?

The last couple of days have been pretty dreary.  It kind of reminds me of Seattle.  I don’t miss that about Seattle winters.   Here in Colorado things are unpredictable.  Last Sunday it was 70 and we planted part of the garden at church.Snow1Well, today it decided to snow on top of the dreariness. There was also rain and sleet included.Snow We had planted some lettuce a couple weeks ago.  They are starting to come up.  Lettuce is supposed to be a cold weather plant, so hopefully they’ll make it through all this.Snow2

Jared’s gardener friend, Tom, gave him some tomato plants and told him to plant them into the ground right away.  So, he did.  Now it’s snowing.

Plant2I suppose if it doesn’t work out with the tomatoes we planted outside, I still have about 14 more that we started inside.  They are growing like champs! Plant

We started some cantaloupe a few weeks ago.  They’re starting to take off.

Courtney, I couldn't agree with you more! It's been hard to get out of bed the last couple of days.
