Waving a white flag won't do you any good it will just blend in.

I agree with all! I'm afraid that as soon as the warmth comes it will leave and we will have acooler than normal spring and summer. I guess the Old Farmers Almanac is calling for a cold summer. If it is a right as it's prediction for this winter we will be in trouble. I don't know if we should invest a lot in seeds and plants this year.                                                                                                                                                Roger.

I'm thinking the same thing. I'm looking at cold frames and getting a tent garage frame then covering it with the clear poly. My long term plan is to build a greenhouse along the south facing lower level. The widespread weather problems are allready causing food prices to rise noticeably. Growing our own is a hedge against inflation and shortages. Good Luck, Rick

We started growing inside this year, Amber is going nuts. The tulips are starting to sprout in the front.  

 

My only day off is tomorrow, it's supposed to pour all day. I have bricks all over the yard, trash bags still frozen to the ground, pallets that need to be split & burned. Wood that needs to be cut, a garage that is such a winters mess I can barely walk in there....to same I'm aggravated is an understatement.

We are getting freezing rain out of that storm. I'd rather have the snow.

Just rain down here....all day so far.  Cool for sure, but not cold.  I too am ready for warmer weather, and dryer.  It's been hard to get anything done on this farm with the constant weather swings.

Same weather here.  I hope all the moisture we have had this winter will not quit once growing season begins.

That one might also be useful when someone buys a really beat up tractor!
