Later planting

The weather has really hit my growing plans this year, as it has a few others im sure.  The wind, hail and rain has been ridiculous for the end of April and the beginning of May. 

Will it be to late to pop a few seeds into red solo cups in mid to late May, for an outdoor grow.  Hopefully by then the weather will have warmed up a bit

Late May is when you want to pop autos anyway, the idea being to take advantage of those best summer months. I'm sure you'll have read this before though.. My experience, popping autos in April and getting them into cold soil early May was an absolute waste of time and space. By early June the soil has warmed up a bit, you've got more sun hours, and it's generally warmer. 

 

So in short, nothing to worry about, perfect timing.

Thanks for that.

This explains why three out of my six seeds hasn't sprouted. 

I'll wait till the end of the month to see how things go. The long range forecast isn't giving much good till then anyways.

Thanks again
