  • According to our weather forecasters it looks like we are locked into a cool, wet weather pattern for a couple of weeks. This is good news for some and bad for others. It is certainly hard to get ornamental and vegetable plants in when it rains all the time. Excessive rain and cool temperatures can slow things down a bit, in more ways then one.

  • I cant tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes alreadysome nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! When it comes to spring fever the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just cant wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things: good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.
