I was wondering if anyone else is as disheartened as I am with gardening this year.
The winter sure took a surprising toll on my perennials. Plants that I've had for more than 5 years have died back to the ground, everything is emerging slowing and looks very unhappy. The weather continues with cold days 50F/10C and colder nights (30'sF/0C). Its June 7 and I still have yet to put out my tomatoes and cucumbers. I have been trying to harden them off and they all suffered damage from the cold being out in the DAY!
The only thing thriving in my yard these days are dandelions and crab grass.
