Lettuce and spinach are about done, cut the last of the cabbage this morning as sometihng is nibbling on it. Picking beets and started picking peas. Tomatoes are getting big but still green. Sweet potatoes and cucumbers are vining out , cucumbers are blooming. Zuchinnis have a lot on them,just waiting for them to get big enough. Sweet corn and green beans looking good. Just wish it would rain. I'm tired of watering. Hope everyone is having a good time at Caseman's show. Too many things going this weekend, Work, family reunion and about 1/2 dozen other things.

I live in the St. Louis area. Early garden, peas, spinach,lettuce, beets (potatoes if I plant some) went into the ground around St. Patrick's day. Usualy we're frost and freeze free by the beginning of May. That's when tomatoes, sweet corn, green beans, sweet potatoes zuchinni and cucumbers go in. We've had some near 100 degree day here already this year, been having temperatures in the 80-90 range, warmed up very early. Peaches and blackberries are running about 3-4 weeks ahead of time. Biggest thing is, we're very dry, need rain

We haven't been terribly hot, but dry weather has taken out most of the early garden greens except ruby red lettuce. We have been getting squash and cukes for about 2 weeks, beets, still have onions, lots of taters, and will have green beans this week. Corn, tomatoes, okra, and melons look to be running late. Most everything is just standing in the garden with their tongues hanging out hoping for some water.
