spring fever

I'm new to the forum but have been gardening 30 years. I live in Boonville, IN; 90 miles west of L'ville.
It's 50 degrees outside. I can't control myself . I'm going to plant spinach, and no one can stop me. I have the seeds and I have the dirt. And we all hate Tom Brady. Good Bye.
Wait, the seeds are sprouting already:)

RE: spring fever

I have the seeds and I have the mud....Guess I'll have to wait. I am thinking about planting a few flats of cabbage and broccoli though. I could do that easily enough....

I got my grasses cut down on Sunday and a little dead nettle sprayed. It'll soon be time to start some major weed control in the daylilies and get some garden going.


RE: spring fever

well i'm not planting yet, but here in NE ohio around akron, i've got snow drops in bloom!!!. what about you?


RE: spring fever

Digger, I've got Iris greens poking through (next to the runoff from the warm water the sump pump, pumps up)but no flowers.
It seems like I had Narcissus greenery in December but they went back to sleep.

RE: spring fever

RE: spring fever

We're at over 15" of snow...close to 20" in north columbus. Just saw my bulbs poking up a few days ago and my snowdrops were blooming. Now they are under feet of snow. My back is completely broken from shoveling the sidewalk. I have never longed for spring as much as I do this year.

RE: spring fever

The breeze feels warm, the grass is greening, the buds on the trees are swelling, the hyacinths are peeking out, the crocus blooming. I want to start seeding!

Weatherman calling for lows in the 20's make me rein in my actions, but I want to start so bad.

I have begun seeding a wildflower garden and put out a small amount of lettuce seed today, just hoping they will sprout.

Does anyone know when the last exected day of frost is in southern Ohio?
