Unfortunately no garden for me this year. It will be late June/early July before we are in at the new place. Too late to plant. I am missing it already.

Not really summer garden but the potatoes and onions are about ready for the table. Just planted the summer garden last weekend.

Too muddy the last 2 years here but I took a chance and went really small this spring..
About 10 tomato plants, 7-8 hills of cucumbers and planted maybe 2 dozen yellow squash. I really wanted a lot of crowder peas, but wife won't let me use the tiller yet and she can't handle it herself on unbroken ground.

Got 7/10 of an inch of rain yesterday and things are looking a little better. My potatoes are coming up slow, beets slow to come up and I have given up on the lettuce. It is starting to hair over so maybe in the next few days can give it a good working. That dang buttercup is everywhere as I use to spray, but just wasted my time. It can't stand heat so when it gets hot it disappears fast.

My corn didn't come up worth jack either, sky. Going to set out tomatoes this week. The garden stores around here pressure people into setting out tomatoes too early. Later is better in my experience.

Normally, when we plant after Easter all is well. This year we had two cold snaps after. The first one got the cukes. The wife got buckets and bed sheets out over lots of the other stuff and they were fine.
