Usually Memorial Day (last Monday in May) marks the start of summer and warm weather here in New England when everyone plants out their tomatoes. Well yesterday barely broke 50F (10C) which is 20 degrees below normal. The weathermen predicted that we would get into the forties. Well they were wrong. It got to 38F (3C) last night. I wonder if northern New England had a lot of late frosts. I hope my Maine gardening friends haven't lost their tomatoes.
If you notice in that last photo, Kronos, my daughter's dog, is behind the garden gate. My daughter is back in Canada now, but I still have her dog for the summer. She is staying with a friend who is allergic to dogs, but she promises me that she will get an apartment in September that allows them. So for the summer I'll have a partner with me.
