that it is time to plant corn here. They are blooming this week about 3 to 4 weeks early. Instead of wondering if the warm winter and early spring has made things early, I am wondering if I am just getting slower :!: :roll: :lol:

We had weather like this in 2007. Got a hard freeze in April and had absolutely no fruit or nuts. Hope that doesn't happen this year.

About that same time on Easter week-end, we had the same thing happen here across the state. It took out all the fruit crops, peaches, apples, strawberries, and blueberries, not to mention veggies.

temps here have been in the 80's, dropping to the 60's over the weekend, then back to upper 70's next week. I just might put out some sweet corn in the next week or two.

When the ground dries out, those are my plans. ;)

Red buds are just out here, no dogwoods 'cept the pink hybrids that usually bloom earlier.
They seem to be right on time, end of March. Guess they are going by the amount of
daylight, like they should. ;) Two weeks 'till "tater plantin' day", hope the rains let up some. :roll:

The dogwoods have been in full bloom here for a just over week, blooms are dying back, and here comes "Dogwood winter"
Just a bit late the cold snap usually hits just as they start to bloom. ;)

We are in for a cool spell too, probably into next week, then I hope to put out some sweet corn and warm weather stuff.

Don't know about the rest of you all, but I need some rain in my part of West KY. It has been almost 3 weeks without a drop of it. I sowed 120lbs of tall fescue seed and have had to water it everyday. It takes me about 3 hours to water the lawn. It has rained all around me since I sowed it, but not a drop here.

If I was building something outside I didn't want to get wet, it would rain every other day. Mother nature hates me!

Three days ago our locust trees bloomed, today is the first day of our cold spell (high in the 60's)
I just noticed this morning locusts starting to bud, looking out at the tree in the back yard, and we ain't that far apart.
Tim, I'm about halfway between you and my brother in Louisville, they have had rain that we haven't, and apparently we've had rain that you haven't.
It just dried up enough the last three days to work ground, though with the other things I had to do I couldn't get to it. This morning I've got "ponds" out in the fields again. :?

we got a sprinkle early this morning, but still pretty dry here. Grass seed in my front yard is in need of a good soaking, but as dusty as it's been, I don't dare water it heavily. I keep just enough water on it to keep it from being so dusty and loose that it'd just run off.

Rain and hail today, warm enough but the cold front are one right after the last, sometimes every 15 minutes....James
