Yeah, but whens the last time you made a snowman, and used a nice frozen carrot for the nose. :D  :D


If I can get that sucker in the smoker and cook him up I'll be happy.

Man that's a beefy looking machine. Thanks for the picture, and sorry I typo'd the brand. Eyes read one thing, brain remembered something else. :wallbanging:

This is as far as my garden has gotten this year so far. Come on spring. I need to get my butt in gear. Id like to have a greenhouse built by mid febuary.

Where are my danged seed catalogs???? Last year I had killer ''matos and peppers ! And cauliflower and broccoli. Peas did really well too. I'm not planting onion any more, they just don't grow well and take up too much space.

You might want to try a small raised bed with some different soil mixes for onion.  They do best in low to mid nitrogen soils. High nitrogen gives lots of stem, but not much bulb.  Also, keep them watered.

Garden is tilled for the first time this year.

Got home and needed some physical stress relief. Started tilling, finished in the dark. Will fertilize organically and till at least one more time, maybe two more times.

Used a 1980ish Parmi rear tine tiller that I repowered with a 8 horse B&S industrial. Got both units for free a couple years ago.

Pics to follow, maybe sometime this weekend.

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, but we used to finish fall plowing after the ground froze an 1" or so. That way we didn't get stuck and could still plow the ground before it froze deeper.
