Got the onion plants on Monday and had all 2,500 of them planted by Tuesday night at 8 p.m.( I am still trying to get ole back to quit hurting! LOL! )---It started raining later that night, and we had a little over .5 when it quit.--(got lucky there!)---ground too wet to work or to get creeper out of garden.
The plants made 4 and 2/3rds. rows a couple hundred feet long.---This year I planted them in 72" rows so I have room to care for them with bigger equipment and run the water bar later on when it gets dry.---still have to apply fert. and herbicides on them, have quite a bit of compost ready to till in between the rows too.
Taters will go in as soon as I can work ground again,---the sugar beets need to be in the ground right now too, but didn't quite make it yet! thanks; sonny

our onions are up and growing in the flat.
still waiting for weather to break [and snow to melt]

rhubarb seed did sprout so we have about 15 plants to put out this year.
tomatoes and peppers plants are a inch tall.
