I have sprouts ! I think they are squash . The baby corn stalks are up, and so far the critters have left my tomato plants alone, and one that I put in a pot by the kitchen door has a bloom .

Anyone in Arizona is welcome to free snow. Just send a big tank truck. We'll load it with snow and keep melting it until it's up to the brim. It's a win/win, you get your water I get rid of the snow.

We still have so much snow up here. :( It's gradually getting warmer, so it should melt... soon... I hope?

I have tomatoes and peppers started indoors for my container garden though. Just planted the zucchini too, but they haven't germinated yet. SO excited for spring!!

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

We actually and finally got a little bit of rain ! So I did not have to water the garden for the last 2 days. The Sacramento area had funnel clouds and small tornado touch down.. SO unusual
For CA .. Odd odd weather this year. We are at 68 today , a tad cooler yesterday .
I don't like snow , but we do need water ! The rain we get is only .10 to .25 " with yearly rain at 6 -8 " . And maybe even some SNOW down to the 4400 ' which will be a cold storm to get that low for next week. YEAH .

Thanks for the info Jayknee. Sure you can have moisture too - we still have most of our flood water too so you can take that. Lol
That hoop house looks great Flygap! Onions work for potato bugs?! Never knew that. Had them last year for the first time. Wanted to know what to do to get rid of them. I heard African marigolds help. I have the super tall marigolds in garden every year so I guess I have to switch. I also read about covering your hills in wet newspaper worked - something about the bugs not being able to get into the soil.

Wow, Fly!!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
