Now that Memorial Day has past, it’s time to start getting the rest of the garden planted. I hope to get to a garden center over the next couple of days and picking up a few tomatoes and maybe even a few other vegetable sets to help get a few earlier harvests then I’ll get by just planting seeds. I’ll post some photos of my progress as I go.
