We all wish that we could grow everything all year, don’t we? But weather determines what plants thrive and when. In Lexington, Kentucky, where I live, the zone is 6b. That means we get snow and freezing temperatures too cold for many plants, and summer temperatures and humidity too hot and wet for others. Go here to learn your zone.

Now that mid-May is here, I am planting my tomatoes, zinnias, and other hot weather plants. I planted my cold tolerant plants such as peas, kale, beets, carrots, radishes beginning March 15. Not much gleaned from my garden as yet, but I’m looking forward to a bountiful harvest.

My roses are blooming now, the azaleas, peonies, dogwoods, redbuds, lilacs and more. The Kentucky air is filled with fragrance. It’s a sweet spring here.
