Just finished up planting the garden.  Now if we can just get some rain.  The last two years were really rough and I couldn't seem to pour enough water on it.  Maybe if I get out there and do one of those naked rain dances it'll help?

 

Here's what's growing"

Sweet Corn -- Silver Queen and Funk's G-90

Red Taters

Tomatoes -- Better Boy, Celebrity, Heritage and Sweet 100 Cherry

Leaf Lettuce

Broccli 

Yellow Squash

Green Beans

Carrots

Jalapeno Peppers, Green, Red & Yellow Bell Peppers

Cucumbers

Onions

 

Used the tiller I modified to work on the 3-point and installed a 8 HP Kohler Magnum on last summer which worked great and a middle buster for the taters.  Loved the seat time.

 

COME ON RAIN

But just think Poncho, you'll be eating fresh veggies when mine are all dried up and gone.  It's 82 here right now and not a cloud in the sky but just a tad bit windy.

It sounds like you got a good start, hope mother nature cooperates as needed now that the garden is in.  We are a long way away from doing so, I used a "pick-axe" yesterday to chip away the frozen dirt next to a garage I am residing, I so wish spring would get here.

There's not much to see right now but I'll take some in the next couple of days and post them.  Then when everything is up above ground I'll do it again.
