I thought our frost last week would be our last. Yesterday, as we were planting hundreds of cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbages into the field a guy came over and said "What about the frost warning?"

Honestly, I had not relized there was one, but everything we were planting is frost tolerant, as are all the rows of crops which have sent there first tenative leaves up over the past week, beets, turnips, and the like.

Now we need rain, that seems so strange to say in May when we are usally hoping for enough of a dry spell to plant! Right now the forecast is for rain, maybe , in a week! So while our necessary project this week is finishing the fence for the new feild in time for a Meemorial weekend planting spree, we will need to also spend time watering as our irrigation is not yet installed...
