That looks good! I assume you are close to planting?  We are about about 4 months from thinking of planting. The brightest spot here is 4 seed catalogs arrived this week.

UGHHH!!!!! Enough with the it's sunny here and we are about to plant stuff!  :mad2: :D (Just kidding of course). Welcome to the site Racerxxx. Up here in Maine we've got snow and more snow still in wings till April.....or later. My wife is chomping at the bit to get her gardens in. My newly acquired tiller will come in handy this Spring. Plant something for those of us who won't see green for a long time still. :thumbs:

It's not possible to till frozen ground, so I guess I will have to wait for a few months. Your garden looks nice, do you happen to have a pic of the Gilson in action? :welcometogttalk:

No gardening here until the middle of May.  I've started planning already though.  Been watching a lot of those square foot gardening vids on the internet and think I might adapt some of the methods to my big garden.  Seems to be a fair bit of opportunity for carpentry and seat time with those methods, although the people on the internet seem to shun tools.  

 

I'm also considering starting an illegal bee-op since we're short on pollinators.  Maybe they'll change the law later, maybe it's just stupid to abide by a stupid law.

We will wait a few weeks then till it all in .

Plan on planting some cold crops around Feb., onions,garlic,cabbages etc...........

Then fill up the greenhouse with tomatoes and peppers etc...........
