Tilled between rows Tuesday evening to loosen up the soil, had some corn and beans just starting to show. Went out yesterday evening and EVERYTHING is up 2-3 inches. Tickled to death

Sounds Good! It is always good to see the fruits of your labor.  My corn and beans have not popped up yet.

Thunderstorms rolling through have dropped temps into the 50s so that may slow things down,

Peanuts is something I have thought of trying but have not yet.

I was out yesterday and raked down the potato piles from last fall. Still too wet out there to cultivate and freezing a bit at night, but weeds and the volunteer spinach are coming along fine!

I have random peanuts come up all around my property every year (yard, landscaping, etc.).  Come to find out, my neighbor was putting them out for the squirrels.  The squirrels were burying the peanuts all over the place and they were sprouting!  I was relieved when I found out.  I thought I was losing it for a minute!  =)

Still too cold to start around here. Typically I wait until memorial day to plant.

We don't want you wandering around in a state of shock. I'll send a gopher friend of mine over and he will take care of those overgrown plants for you.  :smilewink:

This little bit of rain we've been getting is really making a difference. Even have some peanuts sprouting

I read that your supposed to plant corn when the oak leaves are the size of a squirrel's ear.

Everything is looking good this year except for the tomatoes and peppers. Don't know what's up with them. Don't look much bigger than they did the day I planted them.

I just finished setting out 14 tomato plants, mulching & putting up the cages.  8 bell pepper plants have been in a couple weeks.  Potatoes, onions & green beans are looking good.  Peas are blooming, need to plant some more beans though to spread out the crop.

I'm setting out the tomatoes today as well.... that'll bring on a late frost for sure! I have seen it freeze here on Father's Day, so anything is possible.
