An anomaly in the weather has caused more than one to loose their britches. ;)

We haven't even had any rain yet this spring.
Move'n on.

We are behind on rain here, too, Donk.  We've had a little, but well below average for this time of year and that follows a winter with very little snow. Might be one of those years when we plant the garden and then water to get germination.

I planted part of my row crops Monday. Field corn pinkeye peas, zipper creme peas, texas creme peas, rattlesnake pole beans. Sidedressed my sweet corn and plan to plant some more items this week. I will grow the majority of my tomatoes this fall again. Late starting my seeds. We have not had any cold to speak of since first of Feb. Very unusual year. I was swimming in the gulf last week while on vacation.

Got my potatoes in and transplanted 6 tomato plants I started from seeds-- don't know if they'll make it, though. They were quite small, maybe too small.

The tomatoes should be fine if they get adequate moisture.  My mother-in-law who lived in the southwestern corner of Wisconsin never started tomatoe plants; she sowed her tomatoes directly in the garden.  I wish we could do that here.  It would be a less work.

I probably could do that, but it's frowned upon.  :( Come to think of it, when has that ever stopped me from doing something?  ???

Down in the 20's again last night and tonight. The neighbors pear trees were in bloom.  No pears for them this year.  I'm not sure what the cold has done to our apple trees. They were budding out before the weather turned colder.

Not much planting going on.  I did see a farmer planting potatoes today. I would think soil temperatures would be a little cold, even for potatoes. The farmer must be anticipating a warm up.

Sure enough, now they're putting us on a freeze watch for the next few nights.  :-[ Even the old timers would have planted corn on Good Friday around here-- maybe their corn will still be underground for the next few days-- mine on the other hand is just poking through today.  :-\ They would tell me--- you should have listened to us.  >:(

We got our 1st frost for the season 2 days ago. Only have silver beat and kale in to feed the chickens through winter.

You must be at fairly high altitude to be getting frost so early, Wild Dog?

The corn's growing point should still be underground so it will be fine if it's just poking through the soil. It will knock it back hard though.

WildDog may also have a very southern lattitude. :)

I'm sure he is at a rather southerly latitude, but I spent 4 months in Victoria, which is (generally) farther south yet, and I didn't think it would be normal to get frost there for another month or so.

I have a very fine stand of nutgrass in my garden  :).  It is almost impossible to get rid of because of all the little nutlets on the roots.  Do y'all get nutgrass in the Frozen North?

My garden is plagued with maple seeds, some of which are becoming maple seedlings.  :-\ :-\

Okrafarmer our farm is at 1120m (appologies for the metric) At times Glen Innes can be one of the coldest towns in the country, it sits on top of the great Dividing Range. We normally get our 1st frost by ANZAC day April the 25th. I have had a farm adjoining the Western Tiers World Heritage Area in Tasmania which had a lot more snow but not the frosts we receive here. I like the cold, its dark here and I am rugged up sitting on the verandah typing this, having a beer to finnish the day and listenening to a rutting stag just below me on the creek and a Water Hen that just fell prey to a fox.

Sounds like a beautiful place, Wild Dog. I remember going on the train from Melbourne up to Shepparton in Victoria and seeing that part of the GDR, it was beautiful. Sounds like yours is too, and you have one of the coldest parts of Oz, there. It's no wonder they named it Glenn Innes, isn't that a place in Scotland?
