Well, spring is over. Mixed results, nothing amazing, some good stuff happened though.

I got a good start on some of the early tomato plants. The plants are bigger yet blooming later relative to the size of the plant. Beginning to bloom now. So if any first truss megas do set there will be plenty of plant to achieve the tomato growth. The later starts will be blooming soon yet not nearly as much plant to push any sets.

Cherries and raspberries ripe today.

Lots of pumpkins set around the 13th of June plus or minus a week. As usual I grew too many plants and dont care anymore who-sets-what-where. Later I will regret this.

Well that's it. Achieved my goal of an early start. Next year, better patch prep (and maybe keep vines and kins warmer somehow?) so that the pumpkins hit the ground running. Getting the plants big is easier than getting a good fast growing pumpkin to set. Maybe I should try for a bit later pollination date... on a nice big plant.

If I dont get a patch prepped the way I want I may take next year off... August this year is when my 2020 season will either get off to a good serious start, or not.
