The earliest I ever had a ripe tomato was July 4th. But, that was in Delaware. Never happen here in Mountain Maryland.

I picked ripe tomatoes in late June, but that was from setting out patio tomatoes with green fruit on them. Only ripened the fruit it had when set out, and they were an inch in diameter. Earliest standard tomato, July 4th.

It’s a beautiful morning in Raleigh NC and a prime day for working in the garden. I’m going to set out tomato plants today. I think I’ll plant about 150 plants. German Johnson’s, Cherokee Purples, Red Brandywines, Pink Brandywines, Mr Stripeys and some Big Beefs. We should be past any chance of a frost at this point in time and maybe we can get a little bit of rain before too long

Hoed my onions today..... I am pretty sure that is the first time hoeing with a coat on! :shock:

Found some dead ones that were infected with onion maggots. Hope the rest are ok!

Could you see them this morning? The row of peas I planted St. Patties day were buried this morning. I planted a row of red potatoes about a week later, they are starting to pop up. I know I'm probably rushing them, but I'm really getting hungry for fresh potatoes! John

Got about 2" of snow last night! Some of the onion tops are 4" long!

I am still eating last years potatoes! :)
I plant my potatoes from my own stock!

Same here, but somehow last years don't compare with new potatoes.

Another inch of snow last night!

Gone before noon!

That "should" be the last of the snow for us for a while!

We dodged a bullet and didn’t have a frost in Raleigh NC last night. I hope we have the same luck tonight. I’ve already got 100 tomato plants set out

Freeze, Tue and Wed night. Leaves on my newly planted pecans are gone/frozen. Buds unknown but not promissing.

Fruiting apple trees, unknown. Crab apple tree, pollinator for fruiting apples, lost most of it's blossoms. Asparagus that was above ground is now mush.

Tomato plants, covered, one plant has frost damage on one side.

Garlic still looks great.

Still not to late to replant.
I have an excuse. CRS.
