Some of the potatoes were up an inch or so and got froze off a couple nights ago, and so did the radishes!--Very odd!!---Peas are fine,--first planting is about 3" tall, second planting is an inch, third planting is just under the surface,-- so maybe they will make something!
Had to plant 4 broc. plants, and 5 eggplant plants the other day and had milk jugs over them for frost prevention and it did work this time. Ground still really cold but planting is in full go mode around here! thanks; sonny

If you like rhubarb, go for it. When I was a kid we had rhubarb sauce, jelly, pies. No more rhubarb for me. Same thing with steak. As a fam raised kid we had stake until it ran ur ours ears.

OK. So, when wife and I go out for dinner/upper she will take steak and I take something else on the menu.

Finally cut the 1st asparagus on Monday. I don't like it but Donna and the girls love it.
Leaves are finally starting to show on the trees, easily a week or even two late.
Hit 92 degrees today.

Deer have been eating our strawberry plants.

Wife and son hung up cut pieces of bar soap in old stockings around the strawberry patch.

After wife told what she son and done, I had to look it up on the internet. Apparently bath bar soap is a good deer deterrent

It'll probably last a week or so if you're lucky.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.

My wife uses slivers of Irish Spring soap around the trunks of small decorative trees, to keep the deer from chewing the bark off. I guess it helps some, it's hard to be sure.

Plowed some, today. Have peas and onions growing. Put a few tomatoes and peppers, under a poly hoop, 3 weeks later than last year. (Took a while for spring to realize it's time to be here) First corn is planted, too. Should be really going, in 2 weeks, IF Mother Nature, cooperates. th picking of asparagus, today.

Did get the 500+ sweet potato plants in today. Most of the garden survived the late freeze. Been struggling with equipment problems this year, and about down to 2 TB Horses to work 5 acres with, and it's slow progress.
Peas and potatoes look decent so far.---Had a half inch of much needed rain a couple days ago, course it had big hail in it too!
Still getting stuff planted and weeds are right behind us needing to be cultivated out! thanks; sonny
