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

Congratulations! I'm still worried that for us it might be a tad early for the early crops - I don't trust the weather at the moment. Awesome to hear that you've got yours in the ground though!

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.

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!

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