possible snow tonght

OK here it is Mzay 18th. I have planted a few things but very few. It is 50 degrees right now here in NT at 4:00 in the afternoon and we are supposed to go down to 37 tonght and by early a.m. on Monday we are supposed to have a wind chill of 32 degrees with wet snow mixed with rain. I just finished moving all the pots back into the garage or on the porch yet one more time. Is it ever going to warm up this year?

I'm so disheartened! I just finished moving in all my seedlings again! This weather has really got me down. Next weekend I will be frantically putting in my mother's flowers as well as trying to get in my own garden.

I have marigolds with buds on them. I wonder if I'll get them planted before they bloom.

It only says that the low temperature will be 45 degrees tonight for the capital district. My plants have all been outside in pots waiting to be planted when it's about May 25th, but none of them suffered any damage aside from the lettuce getting top burn from a cloudy day. It only said rainshowers, not snow showers here...good luck

Booberry my marigolds are in the ground and blooming. They are too spread out so I doubt I will do anything with them.
No significant warm up until the end of next week here in the Buffalo/Niagara region.

Yeah I had to scramble because I decided to plant out a week ago lol. So I had to cover my peppers and (I know your all going to call me crazy) my tomatoes. Everything lived and looks perfectly healthy. Tomorrow I should be getting in even more seeds as I don't think frost is going to be a problem ever again this year.

We dind't get the snow rain mix but I am not complaining. The next night there were freeze warnings for certain arias and we did go down to 37 here in Niagara county. I still haven't taken the plants out of the garage though I did open the door yesterday when the sun came out and it warmed up a bit. Today may be another story. I think after today it will start to warm up for real....I HOPE!
