    Got the taters, cabbage, lettuce, onions and radishes planted today. Also got a new implement for the garden , a 5 foot roto tiller that goes behind my little tractor, man, does it do a job on the dirt.

    Sam, good to hear your getting your garden in. Down here in south texas i'll be planting my spring garden this weekend. maters', zuchini, yellow squash, green beans. Gonna have to wait a month or so for the pepper plants and okra. Man am i ready for some fresh fried okra.

    Keep us posted on your garden.

    you guys are lucky. the ground is frozen here and where theres shade theres still snow. It'll be awhile before I can start to work on the garden here. even the bays are in ice so I cant go out fishing yet. did I mention tomorrow high is 26*f with a low of 15*f with snow showers?

    Probably gonna be a bit longer here. the ground temps are still in the 30s but with these warm 70*+ days it wont be much more that a few weeks.

    Sam glad your getting it started, you all can start earlier than we can here, it isn't safe to plant anything before mid may, good luck...happy gardening.
