Hey friends - it has really been nice in S. Tex for the last three days.

I got all the garden tilled and made 96 rows 50' long. Boy am I going to have fun playing in all that dirt.

Planted 9 rows of potatoes, 3 rows of Beets, 3 rows of turnips, and 2 rows of carrots.

Will start planting above ground veggies next week. (Mar 15 - New Moon)

This is GREAT!!!!

Pesk Southern sunshine!

Just the same it's beginning to feel like spring around here, so I don't feel as left out as I could! It won't be considered wise to plant a garden around here till Memorial Weekend,,,but what a patriotic time to plant a new source of life to commemorate our fallen heroes!

Now that's a garden!

Keep up the good work Bob!

So far all my garden amounts to is Potatoes put in on Good Friday (original plot), and today's removal of two wheelbarrows full of grass plants from the planed new plot,,,,which I still need to replant the second load back behind the house where seeding in has failed several times!
