Still snow on the ground here, am thinking about removing the snow off the garden area to maybe help speed things up a bit. Noel

Tators are starting to come up, so I covered them with aged sawdust this afternoon.  Peas are at 2-3" high, onions & spring turnips are doing good.

Wow! I just raked the yard today and barely have any signs of anything waking up for spring yet.  They say  location, location , location.

I have a cattle grower who raised about 3000 head a year at his place,  he has a manure digester{ it basicly dries the manure} kind of turns it into dry crumbles about the size of peas.  I am going to get a 5 gallon bucket of that or so from him for my garden.

I was able to plow under all the leaves and chicky poo from this winter, this past week, had a fight with the bottom plow, but I eventually won that one. Now it works good.. Then this weekend I planted peas,spinich and kale after I tilled a spot with the troy-built tiller. Planted all the 'maters,peppers and cabbage crops last weekend in the greenhouse , and put up my garden boxes on the deck . I grow herbs and salad stuffs in these , it gives me more room in the main garden for more productive foods Ltd me tomato's and cukes.

Started by unloading the two Gator loads of old hay I brought home from the farm, used it to mulch some perennial beds.  Then planted a bed of Jade II green beans to finish my part of the front garden:  HPIM1651.JPG  Peas, tators, onions & spring turnips are doing good!

 

Then set out eight "patio" tomatoes in pots, along with some flowers:  HPIM1649.JPG  HPIM1650.JPG

Haven't posted on here in a while, been doing a lot to the garden, just haven't had time to update.

Got a small gate and a bigger gate (to fit the tractors through) at one end of the upper garden. Also got 150 broccoli
and 240 cabbage planted a few weeks ago. Just got the floating row covers on both of them. Also got in 150 pepper plants, but it seems like all the plants are on the smaller side because I think the sun died. It's been raining here about every other day, it's been raining all day today, I bet we have a couple inches already and the storm isn't even half way over. They say it's going to rain the rest of the week and then week after that. I'm glad the garden drains out pretty decent.

We've gotten probably 3 to 4 straw bales down (big 1k lb bales) and we are needing to put down more.

Here are some pictures of what we have done already, it rained last night and its going to rain for the next week. So I think we are done with the garden for now!.    I was talking to a friend who has the local hardware store, he said he has around a 100lbs or so of potatoes that he will cut me a deal on. So it looks like I need to brake more ground and start planting potatoes!
