I started up my 1987 troy bilt tiller (made by Garden Way not MTD) and plowed up my garden last thursday. I am trying not do what i usually do and plant tomatoes too early then worry about frost.

Looks like it will be some time before gardens are ready to plant up here.

I think I will plant some tomatoe seed in a planter pot outside then if it gets cold or frosty I can bring inside. Hope to plant some sweet corn last week of march. That is a good plan with the grow light.

Maynard, I remember when I was a kid dad would get the Vesseys seed catalog and order his seeds in Feb/March. It was a yearly ritual. They'd come in little paper bags. We planted a pretty big garden in those days.

Too early for me!  I won't start my seeds for another 2-3 weeks.  I did plant a few radishes in a big tub & a dab of spring turnips in the garden a couple of weeks ago.  

I have the "itch", just too early!  ~  Lowell

I got plants started in the basement. May move them to the greenhouse as warm as it is getting.

Still holding back here I di go out Saturday and put a spade in the ground full depth, no frost. Pretty dry though, I'll wait till closer to Good Friday to till before I plant potatoes, No use in drying it out too much too early. I did pull back some mulch on the fall planted Garlic and shallots and they are doing well. I won't pull the mulch off till we are past frost chance.
