Nice!!!!  I planted my peppers and they are fresh seeds...nothing.  I will not wait a week.

Mine are going for a world's record. They've been blooming for over a month. Normally they're all done in a week or 2.

The Winter Rye cover crop on the raised beds is really taking off with the warm weather we have been having. Won't be long until it will be time to cut it down and let it mulch the soil for spring planting.

Thanks, CN! I enjoy working the beds, and the neighbors are always amazed at the amount of produce that comes from there every summer. Very Happy

N&C Midwest:  March in like a lion...2019 - Page 2 Snoopy11

How fast the weather can change here in SW Ohio this time of the year.  Yesterday was beautiful day, and I spent the afternoon working on some new flower beds, spreading compost on them and working it into the top few inches. Even planted some Comfrey roots that a friend sent me.

Then, last night the thunderstorms moved in, and the rain has continued all day today. Forecast for tonight is that late tonight the rain will turn to snow and accumulate up to 1.5". Then, tomorrow is supposed to be high of 36°F! Would have never guessed that yesterday when I was out working in the yard without a jacket!   Shocked

We're swapping out with ya. We got yesterday afternoon, all day today, and all day tomorrow to git 'er done. Then we have 6 more days of rain in the forecast. I think I'm gonna make it, however. I got one bed done today, containers planted yesterday, and one more bed to do, tomorrow. Fingers crossed I don't poop out before the work is done.

"...you can garden with both hands. No more leaning over and supporting yourself with one arm, while trying to do everything with the other one. N&C Midwest:  March in like a lion...2019 - Page 2 Icon_rolleyes," CountryNaturals "Suz"?).

Hope to add 2 or 3 new ones this season. BUT 1st things 1st.
BB\'s happy face Open, turn, harvest compost. Add browns from all around.
silly me Frequent breaks & fluids.
Bad weather the last several days stopped work at the compost! So we started tomatoes & peppers indoors (soil blocks, aerogardens, DWC buckets, & paper cups) with much success.
