Is it Spring yet?

Winter does not give up without a fight in Central Oregon.  It is hard to believe it was 16 degrees at "Snowshoe Inn" a few days ago.  Today it reached 80 degrees.   It is important to remember that tender plants can be damaged any time before the middle of June.  I have weather records from "Snowshoe  Inn"  with shows temperature below 32 degrees every month of the year here.  The June 15th date is a good conservative date to use to out plant tender plants.  Today I transplanted onion plants.  If things go well I will have sweet and storage onions in a couple of months. I will not transplant tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash plants to the garden until the middle of June.   I am still harvesting salad greens from my grow room in the basement.  Oh, it is nice to have fresh greens all year around.  I also have a few leeks in the garden to harvest.  New leek seedlings are in the greenhouse and will be ready to transplant in the middle of June.  My goal is to have fresh leeks most of the year for our kitchen.  Well time to crash, Monday starts a new week, always to much to do
