Garden update

Cindy's clematis

A long, cold, wet spring has wrought some havoc in the garden. Cucumbers that went in earlier this month (May) withered and died. Too cold, too wet. Good thing I planted another flat of Straight Eights and an Italian cuke, and have about 20-25 plants to work with. Tomatoes are OK, but not really taking off – no doubt waiting for summer weather. Soon. Greens (lettuces, spinach, arugula) are loving the chill, and we have more salad than we know what to do with! Herbs are coming back, but some younger transplants have dampened off. Not enough spearmint coming back (need copious spearmint for Mojitos!), so I might buy a small plant. Peas are also coming up slowly, which is strange.
