Grow bed seedings

Cucumber and lettuce seedlings

Our weather has been really miserable this year.  Everyone’s gardens are in sad shape.  We just haven’t had warm enough weather for plants to grow.  We’re weeks behind on strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.  It’s the middle of July and I’m just now getting local farm raspberries.  I’m still picking salmon berries!  In July!  <gasp>

The tomato seedlings I planted out in May got hammered flat by hail.  This year has been such a gardening bust I have lost most of my enthusiasm for trying to raise anything to eat.  Pretty sad.

Last week I threw a variety of seeds into the grow bed.  I’ll know what they are as they mature.  Until then I’ll take joy in the fact that something’s growing . . .

Next year I’ll be ahead of the game.  I’ll have my grow beds well started inside my sun porch until it’s warm enough to move them out.  I’ll have hydroton in the beds instead of gravel which will allow me to move them with growy bits intact.  That’s the plan, anyway.
