Test Garden Update: Linda Crago, Wellandsport, ON, Canada

linda_tnIt’s been weird weather up here in Southern Ontario, but then again I think weird is the new normal. We had a major heat wave in April, and very dry. Now it is cool and wet.

 

Everything is in the ground and coming along. The marigold and zinnias, tomatoes, and peppers that I started as transplants all look good. Beans, watermelon, lettuces, basil and calendula I direct-seeded several weeks ago, and are coming along slowly in this weather and in my clay soil. Broccoli ‘Apollo’ is growing very nicely too and loving this cool, wet time. But it will be a while before any eating is happening with anything. The marigold, however, wants to bloom and I think is a few days off.

 

Now time to mulch and weed and hope the heat returns. We need a better season up here than the last two summers, which were wet, wet and more wet.
