Planted bunch onions (Tx Candy and Yellow Spanish), radishes and potatoes this week. Tilled everything last fall after harvest and tilled again a few weeks ago to turn under the manure and shredded leaves I always collect for the garden. With any luck it might be another a good harvest this year.

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

In my neck of the woods peppers and tomatoes  should be started from seed around the first part of March indoors. I always use 3" peat pots and get about 90% germination rates. Warming mats and grow lights make a world of difference.

Agreed on the warming mats. Best invention since yoga pants.

I was a little disappointed at the farm store yesterday , they had seed onions which I bought a pack but no plants and the sets were in those little 12oz bags for about $3.99 . My wife thinks its not worth growing onions will the luck we have had , I could just imagine where those $3.99 bags would have ended up if i bought some lol

Still two feet of snow on the garden but I'm getting itchy to start some seeds indoors. Going to try something called "Cardoon" this year and it has a long growing time. It is recommended that they be started about 8 weeks ahead in the house to reach maturity after transplant.

Hoping to get junior started in the garden this week. It is way to wet to till, so we will run the cultivator through as a ripper. Breaking it up enough to dry out.

Last night I finally cleaned off all the 'mater cages and stakes from last yr, all the old plants still hanging around, and cleaned out the chicken coupe and spreaded that on top. No way I can even consider plowing, way too soft and we've gotten a lot of rain, more to come this week.

The snow just melted here a week or so ago, so its still too wet in the garden....I did some raking on the lawn, dethatched and aerated about half of it this morning. Its coming along. Might get more snow yet, hope not

I just planted the last of the green house starting crops. Tomatoes,peppers and cabbage type stuff. In a few weeks I will get cukes started as well for some deck pots.
My gardens ate still under snow...
Saturday I had snow come off my solar panels and knocked out a panel on my greenhouse so the heat ran all night... doh..

STILL have about a foot of snow on the garden, but it's going fast. The sad thing is, local lore dictates that there be "three snows on a crow's back before spring truly comes", and they've been here for a week. No new snow since their arrival........ :boo_hoo: !

Potatoes are on their third hilling, eating lettuce, spinach, radishes, and lots of asparagus. Will transplant tomatoes and peppers Thursday, and plant beans, cukes, melons and zinnias. There are positives to living in the south.

Had a couple hours of sunshine today.  First we have seen in about 10 days and the first 24 hours with no rain.  More rain for the next 36 hours they say.  First it was to day.  Now it is mud.  One of these days  - - - - .  Got the mowers going today.  Put one on CL to see if it will sell.  Grass is growing so will be mowing next week. Need sun and light wind to get things dried out again.
