I think the weather man is so mixed up..... He says the Northern states are going to be above average through June and the lower areas under average temps..... then he says it could all change.....

Well here in Oregon I got a foot of snow overnight and it's still coming down. My poor daffodils  which are in full bloom are now covered. This is indeed a crazy year, we seldom get any snow!!!

Dave.. good you joined this group.  It's very diverse with gardeners from all over the country and world with very differing soil and gardening conditions...but good basics is good basics!

Muriel, perhaps a low spot or a layer of clay that is a foot or so down that the water can't get through?

I planted the starts yesterday for cabbage, lettuce, chard, bush beans and bok choy.  The ones I seeded directly are starting to show.  We had some serious rain this week, and I got pretty excited about the seeds sprouting.  I stepped into the garden to grab a closer look and sank up to the ankles!  Hope the little guys don't drown.  It's weird that one garden is fine for walking and the other is a quagmire.  Same soil, same amount of rain, same everything.

Hi Linda,

Do you have vineyards in your back yard?  :)   There's a poster here named Carole that is up in Riverside and is a great gardener. Perhaps you two can touch base.  We used to live up in Redlands and had the same weather experiences but mostly just hot.

Yahoo! I just planted my seeds indoors and hope I'm right on time, since in southern Calif we go from rain to hail to snow and back to 72 all in a matter of 3-4 days I hope mother nature is done toying with us for this spring. Happy gardening everyone!
