Not yet, we still have snow. Lots of stuff started in the house, but the snow will have to go to expose the ground first ...then it will have to melt. Laughing

Still, it's 'brisk' outside, sunny and no bugs yet. Spent a bit of yesterday setting stone in the walk where the frost had heaved it or some had gone shelly with age. I'll get that finished over the next week or so, then the ground may have thawed enough to get rid of some of the thorns in the rhubarb patch...tayberries went wild. You got anything in the gound yet?

Yes. I have peas in the ground, a bunch have germinated already and are poking out of the soil. Everything else is inside. Been working on a new greenhouse as a storm took ours out last August.

For sure beets are cold hardy! I planted brussel sprouts last fall as an experiment. I don't see any poking up yet. That's ok...because I planted some in the house as back up! Smile

I just got around to tilling my garden the garden on Saturday.

Digging through my seeds, looking at what I have and what should have or needs to be started.
Planting the May long weekend and hoping to have a decent harvest.

I cheated and got my Tomatoes from a local greenhouse. Smile

I planted 25 pepper plants in the greenhouse on the weekend. Still freezing at night so I'm having to heat it.

I have been so busy with studies and such that I have yet to plant the garden.
Got a few trays of seeds waiting to sprout, so far a few have popped up.

If my sleep schedule wasn't backwards right now I might find the time.
Been falling asleep around 6-7am and waking up around 1 or two and working on homework.

Will be done this year at the end of June, I have midterms this week.

But hoping to get things planted here soon.

Good Luck on your mid term exams Jonny.
I transplanted my tomatoes out yesterday. Have some corn up about 4" and still the majority of corn to plant. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage already transplanted. Potatoes, carrots, spinach planted. Some beans started but still the majority to plant as well. Have some peas that are 6" tall one one field and another field to plant. All my squash, cucumbers and melons are still in the greenhouse as well as my peppers. This year is shaping up to be a good one, excited for sure.
