Great minds think alike! I spent the afternoon in the garden with my GT6000 and Agri-Fab cultivator. Had lots of fun!

I think I'll plant some cabbage and some greens tomorrow, take advantage of this unusually warm winter.

I've bought my seed potatoes for the year-yukon gold and red pontiac. This past weekend I started adding compost and topsoil to the garden, then disking it in. Gonna try a raised bed for the potatoes, they never seem to grow well in this heavy clay soil. Bought snow peas too, I'm going to try and plant both this weekend.

mid March. So I will be a little early. Potatoes, cabbage and Peas can go in most time last Feb. We will have some more cold snaps. When ground is dry I'm ready, Or the temperature hits 80 it turns on the my fire for getting there.

I wanted to work in my garden yesterday but it is wet, we have had lots of rain this year. I need to get sweet corn planted about mid march. Glad you got some seat time.
