in the Midwest yet?  I fall plowed the garden, went over it with the tandem disc yesterday morning.  Then tried the tiller out on two passes.  Worked good but the ground is dry.  Need a good rain on it to break up the baseball sized clods.  Checked the ground temp - 70° at about 2" and 60° down about 5" so it is warm enough.  Hope we can get a good rain on it today and will be good to go then.

Too wet & just came out of several days of hard overnight freezes. I'm thinking about just hoeing a row for some onions this weekend & lettuce in boxes...excitement building.

You guys that got all the snow and rain the last couple weeks will be wet for a while yet.  We missed all of that so could use a good shower.

Still got some snow on the ground. Hopefully, it will all be gone by the end of the rain next Tuesday. Got to go cut some wood today.

Are you putting in "sets" or those small plants ( bunches )  that look kind of like grass ?

Had a nice shower but more on the way.  Got .13 so far.  Couple hours machine shed work this morning.  Got the thrower & chains off the1256.  Thrower on a pallet with the plow, chains on a couple nails on the wall.  Have 6 set of chains so hang them to keep them from rusting and I know which ones go to which tractor.

We usually put in both.  At least 100 of the Candy Onions.  Great for green onions and salads.  They get about base ball size and can eat them like an apple.

Too wet. I aerated the church lawn last night, but anything else is too wet to do, my garden would make a good mud run though.

Grass will have to be cut very soon.

I usually do not get my garden in until after middle of May

Up here in the mitten weve been having warmer weather, and today we had a high of 73!

The ground is wet, as we had a down poar last night, and light rain the previous nights.

Checked the radar and its supposed to be high 60's and sunny all week, I sure am ready to turn some dirt!

I used to start a lot of plants inside but for all the effort the ones I have trouble with I'll just buy the pants at a local greenhouse . Older couple , live down the street from my sons, very nice people too. Its a good morning to go through my seeds ,maybe start some tomato and peppers in cell packs
