As promised, I dragged my two boys away from their video games and we went to the Mega Store to buy some plants. We picked up some tomato and peppers and bought cucumber and watermelon seeds (my boys picked the seeds of what they wanted to grow)
Knowing the unpredictable Kansas weather, I waited until the 21st of April to plant the young vegetable plants. Alas!, it was not to be. On Monday, we got a torrential downpour with plant-destroying hail; then, on Tuesday, the overnight temperature dropped to 25 degrees.
As I’ve said before, the motto for Kansas gardeners should be “Resistance Is Futile”.
And of course, my fruit trees lost all their blooms. So no fruit either.
I can only hope the cucumbers and the watermelons do well so I can have something to post here.
