Garden Update

It has been a couple of weeks since I posted anything about my garden, not much has changed - but it is looking a bit better. My garden soil temperature is up to the middle 60s, not great for growing but at least it will not freeze anything. I like to get into the 70s before becoming too serious about putting seeds in the ground.
Onions can be set out with soil temps as low as 45, but don't expect them to grow much. I will wait until next week to set onions with soil temps closer to 70.
Radishes trying to grow
Still looking to me like it will be a late garden planting year for my Wyoming garden. I have some radishes up, but it took two weeks.
Peas breaking ground-can summer be far behind?
Peas are just pushing through also but the unreliable growing weather is getting them off to a slow start.

Tulips and other early flowers are looking good but a prediction for snow tonight will not help.
In the meanwhile I will keep my veggies and flowers in my little greenhouse shelters, bringing the flats inside when need be.
Temperature 45 outside and 60+ in the mini-greenhouses

I am thinking about May 22/23 as my, tomato and flower setting out date.

Despite the cool weather flowering trees, this year, are magnificent, as good as it has been for several years.

Happy Gardening
