I am just wondering if anyone else is still starting seeds right now. I am still starting some seeds like peppers and tomatoes. Back in my grandfatherâs day he never set out his tomatoes until after June 1st and always had a nice crop. He said that most people were in just to big of a hurry and that if you set your plants out to soon they would be stressed way to much. I know that in his day here in Central Indiana we were somewhere between zone 4 and zone 5. And that now the maps tell us we are more in zone 6. So maybe he would have moved up his set out date a week or two. These days I think about him a lot more than I use to. My relatives are always saying how the only time he ever held a steady job was during WW 2. But I will always remember a man who lived simply and had a big bountiful garden every year that not only provided him with fresh veggies, but also provided my family and all of my Momâs sisters families with fresh veggies as well. When I was a kid I use to help him plant, and I remember how he was trying to teach me a thing or two about gardening. But I was young and foolish. I would always think âwhy are we doing all this work when we can just go to the store and buy what we want.â Now I wish I had paid more attention to that old man. But I did pick up some more of his garden wisdom in later year from my mom. Of course I donât know what they would think of my raised beds or drip irrigation. Sorry about getting off topic. Funny where a thought will lead you sometimes.
