Hard to believe that its April 25 today.As you can see that ploughing in my garden is going to be awhile yet.I figured I may as well use the Kubota to move the flax straw off the septic system.I sure wasn't expecting to have to dodge the snow on the lawn,while taking the straw off.Had to put it into 4x4 to get through the snow to the drop off spot.Were about a month behind this year compared to normal years.Everyone is just fed up with winter already.We usually put the garden in May 24-25 not sure if that will be possible this year.LOL Larry

Thanks for the Pictures.  It's evidently a late Spring for a large area.  We haven't seen a 70 Degree day since October last year.

We are behind for spring also 41*F this morning should be a 60* this time of year. My garden corn is only about 2 inches high should be 12 inches up by now. Big frost last saturday set it back some.

It's definitely colder here this year on the East coast then the last few years but not outside the normal range. They had a story on CBC radio the other day about how cold it is in Saskatchewan and it sounds like they are still snowed under in Regina. On the other hand if moisture levels are higher than normal that will be a good thing for dry areas.

 I was in Cleveland yesterday picking up a new laptop for the motorhome, and it was spitting snow off and on.


I wasn't going to be able to stick, but still....SNOW  at the end of APRIL ?!?!?!?

I think this cooler/wetter weather is somewhat back to normal. What we've had

for the past decade, was above normal, and especially the past 2 years, was

way too warm. During the 80's and 90's, we could hardly get any outdoor work done

before May 1st. I for one, welcome this weather. All this moisture, is helping

the low water levels of the Great Lakes.
