    I'm ready to go, tilled 2 weeks ago, re-tilled this week to speed up warming the ground. Planted a bushel of seed potatoes this week, we also planted 40 broccoli plants. Lettuce is in and of coarse green onions. My radishes, lettuce, and green onions are up and all good size, another week and we will have green onions for the table. Planted more onion sets yesterday to keep them coming, I generally like to stagger planting times
    about three weeks apart, then when they are ready we re-plant. It is too early for the tender plants...peppers, cukes. tomatoes, etc. Not too early
    to seed beans, corn, cukes etc. In NE Ohio I have seen it frost the third
    week of May, then we run like crazy to cover everything...not good for
    this old fellow. I do plant some tender things in our raised beds, but not
    alot. If you can't resist planting tenders, cut the bottom from gallon milk
    jugs, remove the cap and place the jugs over the plants, make a neat little green house.
