Is spring ever going to come ! Then next week cold temperatures and rain. No ground work or planting until May, I'm guessing.

Noel that's what's nice of having a few raised beds along with my regular garden area , I can put a few early spring crops in even if the garden is still muddy . My beds have pvc hoops with a plastic cover since the end of Feb. Put some lettuce in last month

A guy last week said "I like all seasons, just not all in the same week"!

 

Then today my wife read something today..."I would tried to enjoy it more if I would have known ahead of time that Spring was only going to for 1 day this year"!

It appears that spring is slow coming here as well - looks like we get 14 degrees F for a low tonight and they are forecasting snow for tomorrow here as well.  Better to get it out of its system now and maybe it will be warm for all of May - time will tell.

Talking a chance of rain here also for tomorrow.  My boy has not worked all week due to rain every day nearly just 90 miles East.  Drives a truck - hauls a lot opf blacktop, rock and ag lime.

6+ " for us again late tonight and tomorrow until 8pm.  Spring needs to get here before winter rears it's ugly head again.                                           Roger

didn't get above freezing here today, and snowed for about two hours. The baby calf I am bottle feeding is not impressed!

With the wind we have had here the last 10 days there is no way one could hold anything like that close to where it is supposed to be.  Had a wind run of 45+ miles yesterday alone.  Have enough trouble keeping the trap over the corn fuel wagon tied and weighted down.  If they are in a protected area they really work nice.  I have thought about those mini green houses but the wind would take them to parts unknown.  We use the raised beds for strawberries, more for the height of them though.
