Well I went out to get the TroyBilt Horse running, the dang thing won't start. I replaced the starter drive gear I tore up last year, changed the oil, installed a good battery, cranked and cranked and cranked.

I replaced the plug with a better one, it started but wouldn't stay running. The gas is 2 years old, so I'm going to drain it out, buy a new plug, and try it again.

I did manage to find my hiller/furrower for it. I haven't used it in a couple of years. But this year I want 'tators. I have 5 lbs of seed 'tutors half Kennabec, and half Red Pontiac. I also bought onion bulbs, but plan to buy some 1015 Texas plants next week.

I have not had a garden for two years. Just a funk I hope. Anyway, I put some gas in my MTD tiller and it fired on the second pull. I planted potato's and onions last weekend. I am getting back into having a garden. It helps that my grand kids are at the age they want to help. Don

Oh how I dream of tilling my wife's garden......WHICH IS BURIED IN SNOW right now. Glad you southerners are enjoying the warm sun and cool earth. Look forward to seeing pics of your gardens this summer and fall.

Well considering Oklahoma was the hottest state in the country last year, I could use some of your snow.

Good luck on getting your garden started Pat!! It will be about a month before I can even think about starting up here.

The Wife has got her first order of Seeds from Gurneys last week, so she is getting the itch. I think she will start some seedlings in the next week or so.

The Kennebec and Red Pontiac are the stand by potatoes in our garden, always reliable producers. We have started growing Yukon Gold and it is a favorite. May try a couple others this year but have not yet decided what varieties.

Well I got the DB started yesterday, mounted the plow and started plowing. I made a few passes. Looks like I need to adjust the clutch. It want to stick when disengaged and doesn't want to stay engaged. I'll have to look at it.

I bought onion plants, corn, beans, lettuce, carrots, cucumber, peas, and spinach seed yesterday. They didn't have collards or I would have bought that as well.


EDIT: I forgot to add squash and zucchini send to that as well.

I'm anxious to plant too but the rain has made a mud hole of the garden for the last few weeks and we got more last night. I'm thankful for it though since it's usually so dry in the summer. I have all my seed on stand by.

 

I'm mostly anxious to use the DBs. The garden has been turned, disked and harrowed. I'm anxious now to plant and try cultivating with the DB vs. hoeing. Maybe I can stay ahead of the weeds this year!

Good going, Pat. Always nice to get the garden plot ready. Hope you get the clutch sorted out.

Your giving me the itch Pat, but our garden spot is white, deep and really hard right now so I have to wait awhile.  Its interesting how early you can get started though, are you growing the BIG pumpkins this year?

No more pumpkins for me, it to much work. I did hold the state record for 3 years.
