Well, my popcorn is NOT planted! Nor actually anything else. We have just gone through the wettest March and April on record. The word from farmers and the wineries here in Niagara is that we are about 3 or 4 weeks behind.
I have some beautiful transplants that would love to be getting in the ground, but my ground is so wet and cold still. Yes, yesterday the sun shone and hope springs eternal!
I have been transplanting tomatoes for 2-1/2 weeks now, and the hoop houses are seas of green. I’m hoping for a warm spell so the plants surge and look magnificent for my “Tomato Days” event on the Canadian holiday weekend, May 21-22 (Victoria Day).
All my Organic Gardening variety trial plants look great. The tomatoes and peppers have been very vigorous growers in their little pots. Can you warm-weather folks send a little heat this way? Much appreciated! —Linda Crago, Wellandport, Ontario
