    I started my potatoes a couple days ago. Other than that I've been making improvements on the walls around the compost piles, hopefully it won't dry out as fast. Today I plan to sow lettuce seeds!

    Nothing close to frost temps in the 15 day forecast. I may go ahead and start planting later this week. Roll the dice on that groundhog.

    They've been weeded, edged, composted, turned over and are ready to plant. Seedlings coming along in their indoor pots and will go in next week, as will the bulbs.

    Roses are out of their coverings, pruned, fed and trellised.

    Sure. I have more land than I need but still use some containers to grow in.
