For us folks in cooler zones it is truly difficult getting everything done in the amount of time we have between first and last hard frost. I share your dilemma with what to do first, it seems like with luck, I might get as caught up as you can get with a garden, by July.

I always plant some sunflowers for the birds and have self seeded ones and they make me smile too. Smiling

I have been out of town for a week (family reunion) so sorry for the late reply.

My rain gauge shows 3+ inches of rain so I am glad everything survived the heat , but now the weeds threaten to take over Rolling my eyes.

Oh yea the sunflowers are taller than me now Smiling

I have seen some great photos of zone 3 gardens , looks like everything blooms at once and some great combinations I can not get here.
..a balanced life is worth pursuit.
