We usually dont DARE plant anything before Mothers Day around here. Too much chance of losing plants. General rule of thumb is that we usually get a heap big snow squall about the time of the high school basketball tournaments, which are going on right now. I keep holding my breath because I havent really PARKED my bike this year, a rarity 'round this neck of the cornfield.

Memorial weekend up here usually, we have broken the rules and got away with it though.

I usually plant after Memorial Day as well tough this year....
Currently 52 here in balmy VT and the sap is a runnin' and the honey bees are flyin'. To cold to forage but warm enough to leave the hive and poop. not to sure how they get confused along the way as they seem to die on the lawn and just beyond. They must have spring fever too.
NOt to sure when I will get to the little tomato and cauliflower seed starts. Hopefully, this weekend. WE found a great organic heirloom seed supplier so there will be lots of fun and interesting things in the garden this year. Hopefully, we get to tend it and really reap its bounty this year. We were a little preoccupied this past year...

65 and windy today, but it's going to rain tonight.
Lildonner wants to build a cold box for our vegetable and herb starter kit.
I think she'll have a good chance this weekend. It's supposed to be in the 50's.

We had big dumps of snow on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (3-4" each day), so I've gotten my exercise in shovelling of late.
However, it's supposed to get to 50 F (10C) starting tomorrow, running through the end of the week, and then in the 40s after that, so it will disappear pretty quick. The general consensus here is that you don't put much out until the first weekend in June, unless you've got a greenhouse/cold frame set-up. That being said, however, I will be starting a few things in the house in a couple of weeks to give them a headstart.

Potatoes go in the ground here the last week of February. Planting mixed greens now for salads. Tomato and pepper plants go outside around April 10th. Butter beans, string beans, okra, and the squashes (yellow and zucchini) seeds are planted at the same time. Can't wait for the summer mixed grill!

We have had snow as late as May 3rd here. I keep everything indoors until the buds on the oak trees are as big as my thumbnail--rule of thumb

I live in a warmer place than I would if I had my druthers. I like colder climates.

Spring has arrived in Oz

Interesting weather here today. Howling winds all day that switched around the compass with the approach of a front. Rained a bit around 1:30 or so, then got cloudy, then got black, then snow pellets, and finally lovely blue skies by 5:30.
Just another spring day at the junction of the Rocky Mountains and the vast Canadian prairie.... ;-)
