Winter just doesn't seem to want to give up its grip. Monday was almost 80 degrees, yesterday was 21 degrees and high winds. We missed the severe weather and blizzards that went through west of us. Strange weather. The weather has been pretty good for the past couple of weeks. A little moisture but not enough. I was able to get the fence rebuilt around the garden and got some of the early things planted. Carrots, onions, and added to the garlic patch. The beets would have been planted if the weather hadn't turned nasty. Carol added to her grape vines also. It was a little early for them, but they were growing to much in the packages they came in. We covered them well so they should be ok. she also has some more asparagus and fruit trees coming, and more rhubarb ready to plant. I think she is also going to divide some of the plants already established. The horseradish is coming up good. I probably won't dig any of it this year. next year will be the year for it. Usually every 2-3 years. I will wait until September to see how it looks. Should only dig it in months with an "r" in them. I have a friend that makes the sauce, and it is good. Some of the best sinus clearing medicine that exists anywhere. We are also are planning to move our herbs and add to them also. We are planting some of these things in cattle mineral tubs. We can amend the soil to whatever we want and not have to be concerned about the hardpan clay. We are kind of doing a lot of experimenting this year. When the weather straightens up I will post some pics.
