Spring Time is Coming!

Postby Tezell » Sun Jan 13, 2013 11:49 am

In 4-6 weeks it will be time to plant some corn!!

As warm as it has been this week, it sure makes me want to smell some fresh plowed dirt. :D :D

I'm with you Tim, I can't wait for it to get here in Ohio. I put my plow on the circle Cub the other day so I am ready first chance I get.

Thanks for the video, see you soon.

Should been with us yesterday, Tim. Went to a plow day in Cottondale. That fresh turned earth sure smells good. :{_}:

In 4 - 6 weeks the only thing I'll be plowing here is more snow. :lol: Corn planting time is June 1 around these parts. I've had frost every month of the year except July (Not in the same year of course). This morning was a balmy 7 degrees. Montana has four distinct seasons: almost winter, winter, recovery from winter, and fire season. Still a nice place to live though. :D

52 degrees here, today, but it's just a tease! No corn planting, until late May. Cold front from Canada (Thanks, Rudi, NO donut for you!) coming end of next week. Wood stove hugging weather, again! Ed

I was able to plow two gardens yesterday with this short warm weather. It was great to get on the Cub and turn some dirt at this time of year.
I came home from work Saturday and Candace had about 1/3 of the 22 x 22 garden turned by hand with the fork. She is pretty serious about next years garden.
I helped for a few minutes and then said that what we were doing was ridiculous, having a Cub in the barn with a set of plows already on.
I went down to the new barn, dropped the snow plow and chains off and came back and turned both gardens. The freeze and thaw will break those rows down real nice.
Temps dropping all day today, down to 43 now.
You southern guys just make us northerners green with garden envy.

Hope everyone brings in record crops, get it all canned up and stored away.

Was tempted to plow today. Warm weather for sure! 54 and the ground is not frozen. Too much going on here...installing new windows, new lifetime roof shingles, solar panels. Got lots of help because they like corn! Nice garden Tim...thanks for posting. Spring in 65 days for us. Good luck with your growing season! :)

Tim, this post is from last January. I doubt much will be planted down south just yet

Did someone knit that Cub sweater or is it something you can buy? Never saw one like that, and with an airplane cockpit too. Can you move around in there? Look around? Fanciest winter Cub I've seen. Impressive.
