I'm so happy to report the rain we've had for the last 3 days did wonders for growth in my SFG. I've got greens popping up everywhere.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-13

above: My brassica bed is doing great with brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and cabbages. I keep row cover over them unless taking photos.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-14

above: The strawberry bed is lush and even has blossoms on some of the plants. Thats a pot with Romaine lettuce and Munchkin brocc, and a pot of Parsley.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-15

above: In the A-frame all the greens are doing well and the Romaine lettuce.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-16

above: Here we have Chives, onion sets and Swiss chard. On the far right are the sugar snap peas.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-17

Above: The herb pots on the deck did OK. I should have removed the drain saucers from below and will next time. A little too much water but so far so good.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-18

above: On the garden bench the blue tray holds cabbages, caulilfowers and Pak choi that have been hardening off several days but brought them inside the last 2 nites out of the rain. I'll be transplanting them this weekend. On the right are a couple of peppers and some basil that will be transplanted this week, also.

5/5 and the rain did wonders! 05-05-19

above: The asparagus bed in its 2nd year and still too young to harvest.

I also put a tray of my largest tomatoes and peppers out to harden off today and will plant them a little early this year but our forecast looks like no more frost, but tomorrow nite will be pretty close so will bring them inside.

I'm a very happy gardener here in zone 5a, southwestern Maine.
