Yesterday I sowed Swiss Chard, two kinds of zinnias, and white yarrow (yarrow is the Herb of the Year for our Jubilee) in 5 galvanized tubs. I didn't water them in because rain was expected, it did rain, so they are off to a good start.

Thanks Alee, rain is so much better than our city water for plants.

Oh, my snow in April, I can't imagine that. I can understand you being tired of it, I'm getting pretty tired of our cloudy days.

I’m with Michele! We had snow all Easter weekend. Thankfully it has melted again. Some years old man winter doesn’t want to lay down and go back to sleep. Some years it feels like with get around 6 months of winter. This year was really odd in my area though! We had 50 degree days in December!

Alee, we have been very similar this year over here. I am ready for the snow to stop falling. Our weather shows more this coming weekend. I am ready for spring.

Sara, it sounds like your garden is off to a great start. I can't wait until our weather lets me get started.

Hey Y'all
My garden so far is doing good. I planted garlic and onions in large tubs a couple of weeks ago. I planted corn and green beans seeds Saturday before Easter then planted tomatoes, squash and pickling cucumbers earlier this week. The bestest of all though I planted potatoes on St. Paddy's day and they are doing great. This is my 3rd attempt at having a successful garden since "replanting" ourselves out here in Wood County,Texas.

Oh one more thing,I planted an Herb garden yesterday. I have basil, oregano, thyme and lavender. I planted a tea garden too with lemon balm, holy basil, chamomile and Mexican mint.

I'm sooooo in awe that you ladies are already able to plant and seeing results! While we had 75/80 degree weather just 3 daysa go, we had 3-5 inches of snow yesterday and cold temps again! I have my seedlings in my kitchen window, they are just now starting to sprout. Hoping the hubs can get to my recycled window garden shed soon to help me with prolonging my growing season here on our high desert. Our growing season is shorter than I could like. Ho hum!! Excited for spring, tho!

Started my garden again with onions after the silly raccoons dug them up for me to replant.

Rea, sorry to hear about the pesky raccoons wrecking your onion patch. I would have thought wild animals would leave onions alone but I guess I would be wrong.

The zinnias are spouting but so far no sign of the Swiss chard and white yarrow. My new bay is putting out new growth, I am so glad I replaced my old bay that didn't make it through the winters.

I dead headed the purple irises this morning which is always a pleasure each morning because I get to touch and admire them up close and enjoy their sweet aroma.

Nancy, your garden sounds like it's off to an amazing start! It makes me excited to get started on mine!

Connie, I love your bee sign. My neighbor needs that. She has her own bees and leaves all her weeds during the summer because of them.

The ruby red Swiss chard and white yarrow has spouted. The yarrow seedlings are teeny tiny but if they all make it the oval galvanized tub will be covered with yarrow. I will let the Swiss chard grow for a day or two before I thin them. Thinning is hard for me because I am never sure which wee plant to take out with my embroidery scissors. I have an old pair that I use for thinning.

I know how you feel about thinning! Those little guys have tried so hard; now we toss them just because they did not quite measure up? Sometimes I at least add them to a salad so they know they did not die in vain . . .

When asked “How are you?”, I reply, “Better than good!”
