We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Hardening Off My Plants

Since this next weekend will be my big planting expedition, I have started to harden off my tomatoes, basil, and eggplant today. My tomatoes have blossoms on them already which sort of surprised me.I really hadn't noticed that before.

I looked at the 7 day weather forecast and the highs will be in the 80's with one day in the 90s. Incredible. This is atypical for early May.


  1. Agreed. I looked TWC and it said 80's all week. This morning I look and we're in the mid 90's mid week! I planting this week too.

  2. We're in for 60-70 most of the week and nights in 40's so I might let mine sit outside for those not too hot days and get them hardened off.

  3. Weather is insane this spring, we hit 90 today and supposed to be 93 tomorrow. Today seriously felt like July to me. The heat I can stand, the lack of rain not so much. We have not had a drop in over three and half weeks.
