Anyone have their garden going yet? I started my indoor planting yesterday. 18 tomato plants and 6 each of, cabbage, eggplant, and zucchini. Also 48 Marigold and 48 Petunia.
If the ground stays dry enough, I want to get some radishes and carrots planted outside in a couple weeks. Might try a few potatoes too. Hope to get a hotbed made to move the plants outside in a month or so.
I'm getting hungry for some fresh veggies!:bounce:

Its still a little to early for plating stuff around here. Its so wet that If I were to take the Bolens with the tiller in the garden, I think it would sink right in. We probably got about another month to go.

The ground is pretty wet here too. I just have a walk-behind tiller, so I might be able to work up a row or 2 in a couple weeks. Just want to get as early a start as possible for the plants that can take the cooler weather. It's been in the 60's here, all week, but 40's and snow showers are predicted for the weekend.

The weather has been great this week. I don't know much about planting but hopefully everything cooperates to allow for some early planting. I hope spring doesn't just zip on by this year.

Radishes are good early crops, but you dont want to plant potatoes too early. So I have been told

Some years, it can be that way here too. That's why I want to build the hot box, so they can be outside, but protected too. Never tried it before, but it seems like a good idea.
