Planting Day

We had some nasty storms here yesterday. And the weather looks just as good today. I just got back from riding my bike and was pelted by hail. Lucky me.

According to weather guru's, May 15th is the last day for frost in Michigan. That means it's safe to plant. Supposedly. You never know what the weather holds on this peninsula.

I'm taking a chance and planting three varieties of leaf lettuce today; sweet, spicy and gourmet. the seeds are from Burpee Seed Company.I also planted mammoth dill and swiss chard amongst my flowers. In a few weeks, the tomatoes will go into the ground. My onions and chives are doing very, very well. If anyone has any onions recipes, please post them. I'm even thinking about freezing my onions. Actually, they are more like shallots.

Happy planting!
