Been a weird season so far.. weather is finally getting to be more consistent, after a month where we'd be in the 50's one day... Them mid 90's two days later.. then dropping back down... And then jumping back up... Constant shock, not just to the 'kins... But all my plants... Growth is couple weeks behind last season... Even though plants were in the ground 10 days earlier... Oh well... Here's the 1954 Jutras... Furthest along and running...
