It seems that Mother Nature is back on track. Even if you tried to rush her, she'll still only give you what you need in the usual cycle of her days. Not much sooner and not much later than usual.
Some store bought potatoes that were sprouting in my garage were tossed into the garden along with some straw. They are starting to pop up now. These are russets. We'll see what happens. I'm not expecting much, just experimenting.
I trimmed back the grape vines (as so many of you suggested) and it appears that the grapes will bounce back nicely.
I'm also taking the opportunity to get the tomatoes and the peppers out in the sun and wind. These should be going into the ground in 2 more weeks or so.
It's funny...March was SO warm that I thought I'd be waaay behind with my planting but April has offered up cool enough weather that now I'm not in any hurry to get things planted.
At least we're not getting the snow that some of ya'll are getting!
