Post  AtlantaMarie on 5/1/2018, 8:30 am

Woke up this morning to 43 degree temps.  But we're apparently finally past the worry about frost.  Yea!

The last couple of days have been gorgeous - temps getting into the high 70's, dry humidity.  And, surprisingly, the pollen isn't bothering me nearly as bad as previous years.  I haven't had my annual spring bout of laryngitis (hubby's annual vacation, lol!), so life is good!

My garden, unfortunately, is not up & running right now.  Our lives are a bit crazy & even working from home, it just hasn't been a priority this spring.  I'm hoping to get out next week to do some work...  I'm PLANNING on it....  We'll see how it goes.

So, please, tell me what's going on in YOUR garden.  Let me live vicariously through you, lol!

Lots can be done this month before the heat really hits!  And it's not too late to get going!  Gardenate tells us this:

Amaranth (also Love-lies-bleeding) Sow seed
Basil     Sow seed
Beans - climbing (also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners) Sow seed
Beans - dwarf (also French beans, Bush beans) Sow seed
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) Sow seed
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) Sow seed

Celery Sow seed
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) Sow seed
Chives (also Garden chives) Sow seed
Coriander (also Cilantro, Chinese parsley) Sow seed
Cowpeas (also Black eye peas, Southern peas) Sow seed
Cucumber     Sow seed
Dill     Sow seed
Eggplant (also Aubergine) Sow seed
Endive Sow seed
Fennel (also Bronze fennel)     Sow seed
Florence Fennel (also Finocchio)     Sow seed
French tarragon     Plant out (transplant) seedlings
Kohlrabi Sow seed
Leeks Sow seed
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge)     Sow seed
Marrow Sow seed
Mint (also Garden mint) Sow seed
NZ Spinach (also Warrigal greens) Sow seed
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) Sow seed
Oregano (also Pot Marjoram) Sow seed
Parsley (also curly leaf parsley or flat leaf (Italian) parsley) Sow seed
Parsnip Sow seed
Pumpkin Sow seed
Rockmelon (also Canteloupe) Sow seed
Rosemary    Sow seed
Sage (also Common Sage)    Sow seed
Savory - summer savory (also 'Bean Herb')    Sow seed
Savory - winter savory (also Savory)   Sow seed
Spring onions (also Scallions, Bunching onions, Welsh onion)     Sow seed
Squash (also Crookneck, Pattypan, Summer squash) Sow seed
Strawberries (from seeds)   Sow seed
Strawberry Plants Plant out (transplant) seedlings
Sunflower     Sow seed
Sweet corn (also maize) Sow seed
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) Plant crowns
Thyme (also Common thyme) Sow seed
Tomatillo Sow seed

Watermelon Sow seed
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) Sow seed

So let's get out there!  (Me included!)  Have fun.  Be sure to do some stretching if you've been sedentary this winter....  :-)

Thanks for the gardengate info.  I'm sowing cucumber seeds this morning before heading off to work and plan to sow squash and zucchini seeds this evening.  I have a fig tree to plant today too.  It's cloudy today and a bit windy but the morning temperatures are a warm 67 degrees.

We're immersed in a real estate deal that's sapping all of my gardening energy. To make it even worse, every time I go out there to plant something or pull a weed, I get a horrendous sneezing fit. I don't know what I'm allergic to, but even a downpour didn't wash it away.  Sad The good news is that we're having perfect weather, so the few things I have growing are very happy.  flower
