spring is here finally ...............
old man winter has been kicked out of the south.:weeeno hard frost predicted till next fall :fl


figured this would be a great time to start our journal for the 2015 growing season...

cleaned out many of the non productive or frost bitten plants from the raised beds. did pull many good beets small but good for roasting,most of last years bok choi has gone to flower and since our son will be home for spring break next week good reason to pull up the rest of the good ones.

will start staking out the new fence line tomorrow and will probably start setting posts, still need to work tilling up the area to the left where the posts are for the peas this year, but it needs to dry out just a bit more before i even think about doing that, plus need a couple parts for the drivetrain on the garden tractor before i start doing my adaptive hybrid commercial/ home gardener operation

stay tuned to this thread for great things to come......:pop

Looks really good Major! I can smell that good soil. :)

Hey who was that guy you got to run the tiller?

Oh! Wait! Was that you? ha, I didn't recognize you without your carrot!

was going to work on the new fencing but put that idea on hold, so decided to do some work in the raised bed area pulled all the plastic and remove all the hoops, blocks and posts. of course broke out the weed eater for those pesky weeds . looks so much happier but barren at the same time.
it's almost a clean plate for this years garden.

after that sat on the well enjoying the sunshine watching the robins eating worms listening to the frogs croaking and birds singing embracing the beginning of spring.

I like the purple ones, and the red ones too, but the purple are the purdiest. I don't think a green carrot would be real popular, but I have to admit, if I saw a picture of you munching one in January that you had just pulled I would want one!
