    Early bird gets the garden tilled on March 9th, 5-6 weeks before normal. Still too early to plant here, but hopefully will get a jump on killin weeds. Normally, it is way too wet to till before mid April.
    Either way, I had fun tilling.

    Hope to get my Tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and squash all in by the end of the week. Were suposed to get some rain:0a32: mid week and cool down to the low 30's but I got covers for the tomatoes.
    Biggest garden I ever had, 25 tomatoes.Squash between all of them.
    Good luck to all with the gardens...we're gonna need it!!!

    Yep, Kutter, our weather's fixing to change again tomorrow. It's been really great for over a week; mild, but really windy! It's 80 right now; only supposed to be 59 tomorrow w/rain & North winds. Looks like it'll set in for a few days, then hopefully it'll be over. My cousin says he broke over his garden spot this past weekend; said the dirt was perfect.
    Wally, sounds like y'all are gonna be busy!!
    Good luck to all of ya! I'll check back soon for an update!

    My field has white caps on it and ducks swimming in it,,,,, I think it is still a little to damp to till.
