Cucumbers started from seed have early blooms while they are still in pots waiting to be planted.

Time to plant vegetable garden

Pepper is transplanted into a larger pot.

I've started planting my vegetable garden. Last week the cucumbers went in. Bees were already pollinating the yellow flowers so thought I better get them planted before the fruit started to show up.

Next to go in will be the tomatoes. They are now staying out all day and through the night so I think they are ready. I planted a couple of the tomatoes I grew from seed for my mother as a Mother's Day gift last Sunday. I think we are past the frost now.

My eggplants and peppers are getting huge and I have transplanted them to larger pots. It is still too cold to plant them outside. I have been bringing them in every night because they don't like the cold spring nights. I have been told to wait until the temperatures hold at 70 or above.
