    My mother-in-law (now deceased) used to say that you could grow more on a crooked row. I'm not certain if that's so, but she always had a good garden. Seeing your fresh-plowed soil makes me want to get in the garden, but it's too wet here right now. By the way, I've had turnips, collards, broccoli, and kale in the garden since last fall. I just used the last of the collards and broccoli, but I still have plenty of turnips and kale.

    That's just wrong Winston. I'm trying to thaw frozen pipes and you're playing in your garden. Good luck with this batch, I think everyone in the Northeast is ready for spring.

    Quick update on my farming tactics. Here is a picture of my English peas and one of my radishes (now harvesting them). My two rows of onions are in that picture too but difficult to see. They are just sort of sitting there, don't know why. Last two nights have been right around 30-31 degrees. Suppose to get maybe 28 degrees tonight. Warming trend after tonight. Still waiting on my potatoes to come up. I replanted turnips again, beats me what I am doing wrong not getting any to come up? Dug down to one of my potatoe slips, the stem was getting close to the top of the ground, I expect them to start showing this next week. We will see.

    I am amazed how the climate changes just from my area to yours Winston nice garden btw! We are just now seeing seed potatoes and onions in stores fwtw we traditionally try and plant them on St Pats almost 2 weeks away yet.

    I am wishing I had disc'd last instead of tilled last fall or here recently when I had a chance because I still have 6-8" of snow sitting on my garden from our one and only snow of the winter. This moisture could have gotten a bit deeper sooner had I disc'd perfect hind sight. I am doubting right now I can even get in there with my tractor in 2 weeks now but time will tell.

    I have kept checking on this thread with interest. I started to plow a garden plot yesterday, but somehow managed to break the shank of my new-to-me rollover plow. I'm rather bummed, but am grateful I don't need the garden to survive. I'm also kind of shocked I broke the shank: It is a massive old Massey plow, and the bottom is mounted on a 3" wide piece of 3/4" steel.

    Once again, I'm jealous. We were just beginning to talk about peas and onions here in southeastern PA, and now they're calling for our first major winter storm of the season this week. It will be a few more weeks before we get going up here. Some people plant peas March 15th, I like to do potatoes on Good Friday, but we'll see...

    I am going to scale down the garden this year only planting corn, green beans,tomatoes and a few hot chile peppers. I got the watering all configured last year on timers. It took me a few years but I finally got enough of them to do all of it. So this summer the wife and I can spend more time on the Harley and less time wagging hoses back and forth.
