Around here I hear people saying to get your garden in by Mem. Day.  What a big difference in planting zones just in MN.
i hear ya.........i've been keeping records written down for about 12 years, this isnt the earliest I've planted. maybe the 3-4th earlyest. some way later. but yea i usually try and have my whole garden in by around the week or 2 after fishing opener.

Took a bunch of asparagus outhe today along with some winter onions that I started a few years back from some bulbs Glenn sent me. That guy is always spreading joy around. Spreading something anyway.

:rotflmao: :rotflmao: yep just got to leave some go, they grow sets, then replant them. Should never run out.

I cleaned a bunch extra before I left for the cabin to share with gunner and LPS, but that didn't pan out. :confused: :pouty:

Radishes planted March 9th have finally started to act like radishes. Funny what a little warmer weather will do. No idea if they'll pan out but hey experimentation is half the fun at least that's what I always told my girlfriends... :evil:

Applied glyphosate burndown on the new garden area yesterday. Wait until the weekend to mow off the grass then till it up. Never in a hurry to get garden in out here in the wide open spaces. Not unusual to see a frost in late May or even the first week in June. Doesn't usually kill stuff but doesn't do it any favors either. Since we like to grow things a smurf won't eat such as squash, it's nice to give them the best odds of making it.  :happy1:

Also yesterday, cleaned off the residue from last year's morning glories, a lot of ropy biomass. Worked the soil a bit and firmed the seed bed. They should reseed nicely.  Also weeded the lilies of the valley. Wild buckwheat and chickweed can make a mess in there later on if you don't. Quite a few of them get picked for use in floral design altho you'd never know it.

Anyone have any use for these??? I have no use for them. Says they are for refrigerating, freezing, or storing, but not intended for processing. If I like ya I will even pay to ship. :sleazy: :rotflmao:

My kid ordered a bunch of lids and rims from Amazon, 85 bucks later, not sure if I got the shaft though. :doah: :scratch: yesterday my wife's friend dropped off a pile of rings and lids. I'm set for life with rings and have a 2 year supply of lids. :happy1:

You ever make refrigerator pickles? They would work for that. Or for your pickled northern. Just a thought.

He's just a little blue guy mikey so it figures!  :rotflmao:

On the back road to Owatonna the ditch hunters were out looking for apser grass this a.m. There used to be some large fields thru there on Steele Co. 7 until the canning co. in Owatonna stopped raising it. Stopped raising pumpkins too. Life hasn't been the same ever since.  :confused:

I saw they had about a half dozen SnowSweet apple trees at FF. No Honeygold however.  Lots of Haralson & Haralred too. Was tempted to add another SnowSweet here but think I'll save my shekels for now. FF is still good for something. Paid $2.58 for gas there with my coupon.  :happy1:
