Planting the garden finally!

We finally got the garden planted last evening, May 20. This is the latest date, I believe, that we have ever planted. This spring has been cool and wet, with our last snow after Mothers' Day. We were waiting until the frost possibility was finally past. We planted 13 tomato plants, lettuce, zucchini, spaghetti squash, green beans, marigolds around the edges of the garden, and some other flowers in pots. This is the first time we have ever planted the garden without Rowen, but he was at a Historical Board Meeting. He has been having some back pain again, so we wanted to spare him the trouble. Today he has gotten the pond/water feature going, and spaded the part of the garden pictured on the right edge of this first picture, so I hope he doesn't hurt his back with that!
