Even with the coldest March and April and a blizzard or two in April, tomato planting was completed exactly on the ten year average for my garden, May 7-8. Soil temperature is 68 degrees F, daytime temps in the upper 70s and nighttime temps in the upper 50s F. A little rain would help.

Wow, doesn't that look nice!!!

I am impressed that you have everything planted and mulched already. I am still working on planting and my straw is here but I have not started to mulch yet.

Looks good !
I hope the weather holds, and that you get a bumper crop from those tomato plants !
My neighbour has her tomato plants out already, but I see it is going to 4 ºC tonight. About 40 º F so ?
