    Got the Bell Peppers planted a little while ago. Going to take a walk down the street and cut some bamboo for tomato stakes in a little bit. Weather should be a little nicer tomorrow. Will till in some compost and get the Tom's in the ground. Started some cauliflower and brussel sprouts seeds. Planted the blueberry bush. All in all not a bad day. The GDP Auto's are starting to show some growth. They two days old so far.

    same here, tonight will get down to 22, then a slow warming trend, but it'll be at least another month before it's safe

    i don't actually know what the official date is here, but tax day is what the old guy down the road always told me, and he always had the nicest garden in the area.

    We may have had a frost this morning. I was on the trail so not sure what happened at the house, but it was cold AF. I got my peppers transplanted and down in the hole on Tuesday, but I didn't put the glass over them.

    just check my onions, potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

    potatoes have frost damage, but i think will make it. brussels sprouts have damage too, but are better designed to handle the cold and will be fine.

    onions are loving life.

    indoor plants have now been moved from a constant 78 degrees to the garage. this should toughen them up a bit before they go outside. gonna try to start sitting them outside in the afternoon also.

    My corn was sprouting on Tuesday. Haven't got a picture yet. Hope the frost didn't hurt it.

    Got the garden done. It's a small one again this year as I don't have allot of space to play with.

    These are from Tuesday. It was raining, so I backed the Kabota and the truck up together. Sat my ass pad on the truck tailgate and worked in comfort.

    This is my first spring having the UTV, so I'm learning how to be lazy. I backed right up to the hole in the ground with these.

    These are from this morning. The frost touched up some of the peas pretty good. It was heavy enough to kill grass in the yard.

    The wife kind of insisted we get it. I am bad to not want to spend money, but I'm glad I did in this case. And it's a diesel, so it's not going to have the carb problems from the shitty gas.

    Chance is my buddy. We have farm cats, so lots of them are wild. But she is my favorite.

    I covered up the hole when I got in from work last night. They all looked good when I took the glass off this morning.
