I spaced that one I tthought we were at new moon we are at full moon. Duh! Read my calendar wrong with my pencil moons for quick look. It is transplanting time and root crop planting.

So nice to hear back from you Vicky. Looks like you might be getting some hardier veggies into your gardens. Still waiting here, winter still fussing, it may not be on ground right now but expected once next week. I have my Jiffy seed planting tray, 72 peat pods to fill. I have broccoli seeds and want to get brussel sprouts started. Can you give me more veggie seed suggestions to start inside. I don't need peppers, tomatoes, not planting potatoes. What about easy flowers? I have pole and bush beans, corn, pumpkins, cukes, zucchini, carrots, beets, maybe Egyptian onion and garlic. Some I will glean to church veggie garden for their food pantry, Wednesday's.

Wow this moon cycle snuck up fas Sun is 2 days before the new moon. I'm still plugging away trying to get the beds built. We put in a frost free hose bib on the back of he house yeserday. I got some asparagus crowns in. Need to get the 2 purple ones in but need a bed built and filled for them, prrobably get more purple crowns. They are female plants the green are only males only 40 cents a crown at Farmer's Exchange.

Darn new laptop. I hope I get used to it. Miss my old one. Well once the ground unfrozen will get veggie rows ready to plant end of  April into May. I did pick up a 2016 Farmer's Almanac. Bunny dug into a mound of soil I had put in oldest veggie garden. I am still collecting used coffee grounds for lawns and gardens.

The mole probably came thru the holes the dang grass made. Still trying to get my beds done got one almost filled. I spaced I should have built a skinnier bed next to he fence like I planned.Sure hope I can keep the criters out this year. Went out lastt night to get a bag of potting soil out of the wheelbarrow. Was going to bring them by he door but it was off sided and tried to fall over. Got it back upright grabbed one bag then the handle knocked me on my butt and popped my back down by hip. Think it helped my back :)

Been working on making hive boxes all week and painting got 2 lids and a base to do yet, but I need to plant some potatoes and a few other things. Trying to get a head start this year on a few plants last freeze is April 17 so we will see what happens. It's been in the 70's and high 30's in the mornings and 40's. Built a box on 2 bike wheels. 24" X 48" for Herbs for my wife. I finished it up by lining it with plastic and installed 1/8" hardware cloth to let the water drain out in the middle of the floor.

Been outside in one of my beds sifting dirt and and Burmuda grass that has taken over about half the bed so extreme digging and this is the bed the mole got in through the plastic some how so I'm going down to plastic and pick it up and lay down some hardware cloth and lay the plastic down on the wire and we will see if those little buggers get in now. Got it half done  so maybe I can get it done tomorrow. I got tomatoes up San Martino and

Both my old computers gave up. I am on brand new laptop, a process of relearning. Will be getting as long as ground unfrozen. Got some fresh seeds to plant and try in my veggie garden. Also picked up a herb, considered as on packet, Purslene. I will do those in pots.
