I have been been busy so I have nothing planted or tilled. Matter of fact I have huge hedge tree down in my garden that I have to get cut up. Some of the ole retired guys in town have their potatoes, onions, radishes that type of stuff in. But it is so dry, I am hoping to get the rain they say is coming for the next few days before I really want to get anything planted. Had aspargus coming up a few stalks are ready to cut and had about 5 more popping through the ground this morning.

We are planning to do our “urban” garden next weekend.  One of my favorite times of the year.

Asked the neighbor at the river if he had his garden started yet, he said do you see any weeds growing yet??.. I said no, he said to early to plant a garden…

I am pulling out the Roundup this weekend.  My garden is covered in new weeds.

I’d be amazed if we didn’t have significant frosts yet (of course, I’m in the northern part of the state).  I receall freezing my butt off during early turkey season many times, and we’re still weeks ahead of that.

He is an old retired guy that has a beautiful garden…It has been tilled with rows ready for planting for a couple of weeks…I can’t believe he hasn’t put in onions and radishes yet…

He used to make wine/shine from the cherry trees from our river lot…Man do I wish he still made that!!!!

I can remember sitting in the Shawnee during turkey season with snow and sleet covering me…Need to start going back down there just for the get away factor…

I don’t think we are going to get anymore hard freezes but who knows, but I wouldn’t even be afraid to put in some cabbage, cauliflower or any of them type of plants in right now. What does have me worried is my cherry & peach trees have bloomed with the apple/pear/plum trees not to far off from blooming and my blackberries are greening up pretty quick also.

I am thinking of taking out 30’x30’ garden and building 4 raised beds.  My gardener has a hard time keeping up with things once it all gets going.  I am thinking this will help.  Not sure

I need to get a bag of 12-12-12 and a bag of lime for mine before I till. I also use that Weed-N-Feed, it sure helps to keep the weeds out. Finish cleaning up that tree and mow for the first time this week end then it will be on to the garden.
