I don’t know about you guys, but here in the Midwest, it has been a roller coaster weather-wise.  We went straight out of winter to 90s.  Everything that could bolted.  Hot stuff wasn’t ready.  Just one of those years!  

And BAM—June!cheers

THanks, RJ, for the June start up.  It sure doesn't feel like June on the Cape.  40's & 50's here!   Sad  My planted out tomato seedling look awful.  The sowed squash and cuke seeds have sprouted but I think they are going to dive back down if we don't get some warmth soon.

BUT, the plus side, the asparagus, greens and other cold crops LOVE this weather and are thriving:

I'm not kidding you, my tomato plants are purple.  No   It's just too cold.  All my other hot seedlings are outside - zinneas, peppers, more tomatoes -and haven't grown a lick.

BUT, the beets are doing well as is the garlic, and I'm enjoying the fresh asparagus, giant salads, leafy greens, chive flowers, radishes and sharing strawberries with the rolly pollies daily.

The heat will come.
It's a nice salad, especially with the whole chive flower!  I also see a Korean melon in the background; any plans for growing that melon?

Hey neighbor! That's one beautiful salad, I bet it was tasty too. As far as the heat, on Monday we're supposed to get into the 90s over here. High 90s apparently. So hopefully our gardens will be happy. I've been loving the lower temps and lack of humidity, but I know my tomatoes like warm nights, and we certainly haven't had any of those. Soon...soon.  sunny

The alliums are blooming! In front of a house in Perkinsville, Vt., (05151) has the familiar purple pom-pom blooms. Wink  

And a firefly got in our house, LOL. Anyone else here noticed any fireflies yet?

Too cold here for fireflies. I don't have even a single bee, even tho my lawn is full of clover.  Sad

No fruit on the fruit trees this year either.

Well if you guys have anything like what we are experiencing, it goes straight from wintry spring to summer!

CC, I lost both of my delicata last year.  Moved them to south annex containers this year, hope that does it.  My 2 plants look good so far!

Based on the forecast, Vermont is going to feel like it jumped from June to September!
Overnight expected to drop to the 40s! (The night after tomorrow)

So THAT'S what eats the strawberries like that? I share strawberries with something that nibbles a few bites out of them exactly like your picture. I thought it was slugs, but I do have a ton of pill bugs around.

SR, you have to cover them from the SVB or they'll be destroyed.  

BJW, Sluggo Plus works on pill bugs.

Looks a lot like we have a new record low, according to WU!

WU reports that the previous record low was 51 F in 2008. (when June 26 is selected)

And another previous record low was 43 F in 2002 (when June 25 is selected) and one of our thermometers recorded 41 F this morning, apparently!

Not all parts of the country get the hated SVB's.  We do.  This is what I did one year when we had summer squash planted in a barrel.  Covering was tulle.

Beautiful coverage! SVB is about the only pest I don't have to worry about.

RJ, but today Mother Nature turned up the heat here, FINALLY!  

I thought I should cut off the lettuce before it bolts but could only make a dent in it.New England June, 2018 00910
New England June, 2018 01010


The tomatoes are showing some buds.  The plants on the left at the trellis are my March starts, the ones in the middle are volunteers!  Sometimes I wonder why I bother... Rolling Eyes
New England June, 2018 01410
Those are cukes on the right.

Peas are happy.  Funny thing tho...some of the sugar snap peas seem to be snow peas.  This happened a few years ago, too, and Burpee pulled their stock of sugar snaps because of the mix up. New England June, 2018 00810


The garlic is great as usual!  It'll get pulled around the end of July once most of the leaves are dead. New England June, 2018 01110


Squash box is covered to keep SVB out! New England June, 2018 00610
In ground strawberry bed on the left.  I didn't cover it this year so not many berries left for me. 

All in all, things are shaping up on Ol' Cape Cod.
