I put down the seeds for geranium around mid or late May in 2020. I live in Pacific Northwest.

Now it is just like this after almost 2 months

enter image description here

It's only 4-5 in tall and no flowers yet. It's been cool this summer. Should I worry? Will it bloom or should I just pull and give up?

Pelargoniums (which is what "annual" geraniums actually are) take more than eight weeks to flower from seed, which is why many gardeners either root cuttings from the previous year or start seeds indoors, in mid-late winter. In fact, this site and this site both give a range of 12 to 16 weeks. Your plants will eventually bloom, but maybe not until mid-late August.

They look happy and healthy right now, so just keep doing what you've been doing regarding fertilizer and water and you'll (hopefully) see flowers sooner rather than later.
