    Im building more raised beds, these will be cement block 16 inches high, building my own soil and "fishing worm beds. Lots of horse manure. those beds will be for berries
    I have 4: 40x40 x 36 inch tall beds. The beds get warmer sooner than the ground. Easier to maintain produce sooner and longer

    I planted garlic back in November and it's a foot high now, also have s bed of red torpedo onions going. Broccoli, kale and cauliflower are starting to take off too. Just put in a 35ft by 4ft raised bed I have the first asparagus of the season just coming up. Peas, cukes, bush beans, peppers and corn will go in a little later. We had such a mild winter that my Thai lemon grass barely got frost burned. It was 75 degrees today!

    I saw this thread show up and I thought "who in the hell is thinking about gardening right now?" It's supposed to snow 5" here (probably snowed 2 or so since this AM) and it's 11 degrees out.

    Been hitting th 50's the last few days. We went fishing Saturday and set up on holes from Friday, the Lake had split with open water,.. so maybe the trip tomorrow is out.

    Ill start peppers and tomatoes in March Then move them in and out of the garage after they are a few inches high.

    I always moldboard plow our garden in the fall after I have fertilized it. I have tried to start seeds and it was always a disaster. They get about 2” tall and either die or fall over, For the past several years we have bought plants, it seem to work the best for senior citizens. It was 0 here this morning, not thinking too much about the garden.
