    I've got beans, peas, corn, tomatoes, two types of lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, watermelon, zucchini, spagetti squash and cucumbers planted.

    Now I just pray that we don't get a freeze....

    We have the onions, taters and a few other winter season veggies in, but have spent the past couple of weeks prettying up after digging up a big section to fix a drainage issue that was going to effect the new chicken house! Priorities!

    Since it has been in the 80's all week it is SO hard not to start planting, but I keep looking at the calendar and it says January. Tomorrow we are going to pick up a another fruit tree or two, so that will have to cover for the veggie planting wish. We might get the peas, broccholi, lettuce, and a few other things in.

    We usually put ours in about a week after Mother's Day. Some things go in earlier, but you're lucky!

    I've had collards, mustard and bok choy in the ground since early Dec, but this global warming sure is keeping everything from growing...I've also got about 100 garlic..I planted onions, yesterday and will plant my garden peas, in the next two days. I'm presprouting them, since it is last year's seed and don't want to waste the space on useless seed.

    I purchased 25lb. of red potatos. I split the big ones and am letting them dry....I'm going to try greensprouting, this year, before planting.
