Today is BEAUTIFUL! About 50 degrees with lots of sun. We are just recovering from heavy rains the past two days - I thought for sure I'd be planting by now, but the ground is saturated and it looks like more rain is coming. Oh, I HOPE the forecast is wrong! This is the lastest I will have ever planted in the 4 years we have been here.

I got my peas in last Sunday. Fortunately. We then had several inches of rain and again, fortunately, it was not a downpour but rather a steady rain, so the seed stayed put where I planted it rather than in a pile at the end of the row.

It certainly is wet here. We can see standing water on the Missouri River bottomland that lies at the foot of our "cliff." And just a few miles to the south the Meramec River is in full flood. I feel sorry for the folks affected by it.

I'm really glad I started my lettuce inside this year. It's already full size and ready to eat. Started pulling radishes too. Cabbage looks good. Peas are about 15 inches tall. Potatoes have started to sprout out of the soil. Hardly any beets germinated and this was my last try at those. They never do well for me.

These aren't really spring veggies but I am happy I got my tomotoes, peppers, eggplant and herbs planted in the garden today. Next I'll move on to the stuff that needs warmer soil--cuke, snap and lima beans, squash, pumpkins, okra, sweet potatoes, melons.

I hope everything is growing well for everyone!

I was really lazy this year and didn't grow any snow peas or any other spring crops despite having such great success with snow peas last spring. The only thing I planted in January was potatoes (I've harvested a few and they're great!).

Perhaps this fall or next spring will be the 'great experiment' with cole crops here.

A sign of the late spring here--my asparagus is just now starting to come up. The Sugar Snap, Sugar Ann, and Caselode peas are up. I did reseed some that the birds got and they are just peaking out of the ground. I planted lettuce (Adriana and Anuenue) in large pots on the front porch. They're about an inch tall now. The thought is that they'll get some shade as spring moves along and the trees in the front yard leaf out.

The 10-day forecast looks pretty good. I'll get the remainder of my brassicas out in the garden tomorrow (I'm taking the day off from work) and get some more tilling done.

tomorrow night I will have my first cutting of asparagus. Had 3 spears last night mixed in with my spinach. Spinach is fall planted and covered now growing great. Rhubarb is about 4-5 inches w/ small leaves. Peas are SLOWLY emerging - planted March 15 but we have had a long slow spring. Lettuces just breaking ground and radishes up and just barely getting first leaves. Next two days are to be rainy and cool. Piegirl

I have lots of tiny little pods on my Jumbo, Gold Mine, and Dragon Tongue bean plants. I harvested my first zucchini of the year last night and will cook it up today for Sunday brunch. Mm.
