Bert, we planted a kitchen garden about 7 to 10 days ago. Onions, beets, carrots, 2 types of lettuce, spinach, and carrots. The spot it is in may be a little too wet if we have normal rainfall. Onions are beginning to sprout. I have tomato seedlings, probably 7-8 varieties, up about 2 inches tall on my side porch and will transplant them in about another week. Been eating spinach, kale, and mustard greens all winter.

March will be here in a few days. Time to get some fertilizer on the hay fields, and oversow some spots that have gotten weak.
Gonna have to wait for a dry spell to get the early garden out. Way too wet here to do any ground tilling.

Just waiting on a dry spell to dry and get the land worked up here... just as it seems like it is a day or so away the rain always seems to find us... it's hard to complain about rain though. Great to hear so many people out there already getting started though! :D

We have rain forecast for Wednesday and Saturday. I'd sure love to put sone taters, cabbage, and broccoli, and more of the items mentioned above in the ground soon.

I have a couple thousand plants growing in the greenhouse, getting ready to set up the float bed and start some tomatoes.
