Got all the early garden planted yesterday. Started raining about an hour after I finished. Just so it doesn't get flooded or beat into the ground

It is raing here & thunder & lighting . Some places getting large hail. So far we haven't gotten the hail yet. Don't have to worry about garden as to wet to get it plowed .

We put out some more cool weather stuff today in 80+ degree weather. Does that sentence sound stoopid to yall too? Ennyway, we also planted 2 types cukes, cantalope, 4 types squash, and 3 types of watermelons in cell trays to transplant in the field in about a month to hopefully get an early start.

Bruce how about under the toenails? I had a grandson when he was around 4 love to ride the tractor with his papaw but when plowing he didn't want to ride ,wanted his shoes off and his feet in that soft fresh dirt.

When I refer to early, I mean peas, lettuce, spinach, beets, cabbage, and potatoes. Stuff you don't get too concerned about if it gets cold.

Oh I know - and it's a great time to be getting them out! I just have no luck whatsoever when I do it... for instance my snap peas 2 weeks ago... 2 days later washed out and over the hill, just like my potatoes last spring that I got out in March. It always seems to happen :lol: so this year I'm shooting for early-mid April to get mine out. Awesome to hear that you're getting a good start though!

Soft dirt might feel pretty good on bare feet. Our granddaughter is the same way :shock: ;)
