I have lots of greens (collards, kale, spinach, lettuce ) planted along with potatoes. I am thankful for the rain last night and today. I was debating hooking up a hose to water, because the outdoor faucets are winterized and this weekend we are supposed to have freezing overnight.
Tomorrow the herbs and plant starts will return to the little greenhouse and the raised beds will be covered - everything else will have to fend for itself.

Next week a trip to Baker Creek Seeds in Mansfield, MO is planned so I am sure I will get more of a planting fever!

DH cleaned out planter boxes this week and bought some veggie plants but hasn't planted since it is supposed to cool off again this weekend.

My rose bushes are starting to get little leaves on them, but it's a little chilly in the St. Louis area this weekend. Hopefully, it won't hurt my roses.

Last April's wildfires about wiped out the tree's in this area, depressing to look at all the dead tree's.

so... we're at this place last fall and they were clearing out their tree's we bought 8 tree's that were priced from 50 to 80 dollars and gave 10.00 a piece for them. then this spring found a couple cherry tree's and bought. now I have 10 tree's to plant, cherry tree's are going in the backyard but the other 8 are going to the farm that suffered so much fire damage.... and i'll have to build fences around all 8 to keep the cows out... seemed like a good idea at the time... cheap trees but now comes the work.

It is truly an abundant Spring

The lettuce and spinach is up so high I can see it from the kitchen window.
And the oregano is spreading and pickable. Thyme is there, but a little slower. And the mints, including cat nip, are ready to make tea from.

With the wild violets, dandelions, henbit, purple nettle I am having some great fresh salads now.

Lot's of gardening going on down there. Up here in northern WI, the only thing happening is tapping the maple trees for sap. We don't but those who do say it's been a good year for that. Looking forward to when we can at least see some spring flowers poking their heads.. It may be awhile yet though. Lot's more snow predicted for Wed/Thurs/Fri.

In Springfield, we were advised to cover any "tender young plants" last night and since that describes my entire garden I covered everything. Tonight is predicted to be even colder BUT temperatures will rise tomorrow to 70•.
How is that even possible?
It's Missouri.

dug our potatoes, not real big but got a lot of them and small new potatoes are better than the big ones anyway.

picked more beans than know what to with, been giving them away, corn is about shoulder high it's better looking than any I've had in years, tomatoes are sitting on.

didn't get any squash hail took them out, replanted but afraid they'll have problems with the heat this late.

I agree about the potatoes. My Grandchildren love to dig...like finding Gold! Ha
The small red ones are their favorite...with fresh dill and lots of butter.
