Tough summer day in spring

2nd planting of corn put in today. Boy was it hot! Being a miser with an inflatable swimming pool (thanks Todd & Robin!) full of water for my little lettuce and cabbage plants. I sure hope I don't use it all up before the polywogs get their legs. The big greenhouse has some great looking bean, tomato, cuke, squash, cantaloupe and watermelon plants in the ground. I'll be taking that down in a few weeks when the danger of late frost is officially past and those little plants should boom up into big plants. If we're lucky we'll have production maybe as early as the 1st week of July.
