Ive got the garden spot all worked and waiting. Got lettuces,cabbages,brocos and herbs started in the mini greenhouses in the front room.

Been watching the weather and hope to have the first "cool crop" planted by the end of Feb to mid March.

Potatos,onions,garlic,lettuces,cabbages,brocs,radishes and carrots.

 

 

I tried to grow a Giant pumpkin last year

Great looking garden area you have it's BIG  no wonder you use your DBs in it .  Did you use the Troy hiller to open the ground for the potatoes ?  Do you use any kind of planter (  Earthway  or other )   for such a big garden ?

I used the DB for opening the furrows for the Tators, and I do have an Earthway planter, I just didn't use it. I should get it out and do a video with it.

Read your post to my wife as she was leaving for work ,  She  asked if it was a "warm snow "  naw told her you mid westerners are just  "tough son of a-guns "

Well since everything you planted is sub-soil the snow is likely to be a big benifit! in your area it is not likely to stay cold enough to or wet enough to cause the seed to rot. I have planted potatoes and had it snow after and as long as there is not a lot of rain before it comes up it would not rot. In Fact I would not be surprized to see potatoes come up  did not get last fall and was in the frozen ground all winter. The only thing I worry about is plants leafing out and a late frost biting them.  The one thing that I'm always concerned about is my peach trees. They seem to bloom vary early in April and it is not unusual for frost to get them up here.

Root crops are biennials, meaning the first year they make a bulb, and the second year they fruit. I have found potatoes growing the next from some that missed.

Well my lettuce, carrots, spinach, and peas are up. The onions look like they will make it, and the Tators have yet to sprout yet.
