Still planting

We had snow flurries a full week after the supposed last frost date, but no frost. Go figure.

I have planted more squash seeds (Snackjack, Marina di Chioggia, Galeux d'Eysines, Butternut, yellow crookneck, and zucchini). Yay! Squash!

Something is nibbling my cabbage sprouts, either bunnies or bugs. Putting the bug netting my mom got me over the spinach and peas seemed to keep them at bay, so I put some over the cabbage tonight. It's less satisfying, since I can't really see the sprouting plants, but it's more satisfying to have growing plants and frustrated bugs than to have growing bugs and frustrated gardeners, ie, me. :)

We shall see. At this rate, I may or may not get everything planted in the next two weeks. (I am nothing if not ambitious.)
