This year I'm starting Swiss chard in small pots - they've just sprouted and are sitting in a sunny window, and mid-March I'll transplant one seedling per 2 gallon pot outside to my cold frame. This is a veg that takes off here in The Netherlands. When the plants go outside I'll post a photo.

Parsley and basil are out as well as two or three tomato plants. I'll decide what else to put out. The temperatures were very high today. Water, water, water.

We're getting about two meals a week now. I started 2 more pots this size with 4 seeds each about 2 weeks ago. They should be big enough in 2 months. :)

The beans are coming up nicely and the cucumbers are as well. It is supposed to be very hot tomorrow so I will water everything in the morning.

I guess I won't have to water in the morning. It's raining right now. This has been the wettest May ever recorded in Virginia. We've probably had 10 inches of rain this month. I hope we don't have a drought this summer.

Angie, good luck with the beans! I set out the pot of Rocket - sharp lettuce - in the cold frame from the greenhouse.
