    Man,I don't know if spring is early this year or not, Been seeing trees budding out,flowers coming to bloom,Grass's growing etc.
    So the wife and I got the fever today and bought several trees and bushes plus some things that grow on vines and make grapes.
    Put in peach,apple, pear, plum trees today
    Along with hazlenut and blueberry bushes.
    Have blackberry vines flowering up to!
    Also some muskedine vines.
    If the heavy rains holds off I'm going to put in some orange,lemon or lime trees this year.
    What are the rest of you people planning to plant?

    The daffodils were blooming here in East Tennessee the first week of February, and the willow trees were putting out leaves, 3 weeks before the old norm, but the same as last year, and we had a hard freeze April 17th, 2018, so I won't be starting any seed inside the house for a month yet.

    Daffodils are up here in the PNW, too... Still, not warm enough for starts.

    My flowering bushes and trees are blossoming early. We had a couple nights down into the thirties, then it warmed and rained. Everything thinks spring has sprung!
    But..... March usually brings one final late freeze, knocking all the blossoms off! We will see.

    Not in the mitten. Ground is frozen to about a foot down. Then we have about 2 inches of ice. Topped off with a foot of snow with a crust of ice.

    Some time in may. Unless there really is global warming then april.

    Got a Baker Creek catalog and am considering what to put in.. Started reminding the rabbit gal to bring in dropping for the garden.. Is that close enough to starting or just a bit premature?? Can't plant till May or so..

    if we follow the logic of the poles flipping we can expect more erratic weather..... so this questions becomes critical as the years go by. Here in phoenix we have two seasons, Jan thru about June and August thru fall veggies in November or December. we don't grow anything much in the heat of the summer.

    The poles may flip but the axial tilt and wobble continues as it has always done.

    2 feet of snow in my yard. High of 27 degrees and a low of 6. I think it will be a while around here.

    It snowed last night and more is coming. I don't think spring is close yet. It's 19 out right now.

    Is it Planting Season Yet?!?!?! Sure, right after I shovel off the 4+ feet of snow in the garden... The wife has started her tomatoes and a few others using grow-lights in the house though...

    I have onions and garlic coming up. Been dry here in central Colorado. I've been getting the fever to start planting something. Never had much luck growing potatoes. Wonder if I should start them soon?

    Warm enough in East Texas but too wet. Potatoes would rot.
