We are off and growing

Post  Cajun Cappy on 3/20/2015, 1:25 pm

We decided to take the chance, roll the dice and plant our garden box on March the 8th.  We are playing the odds.  It came a very late frost last year and surely it wont twice in a row.  We are hoping that for once the Algoreans will be right and it will be a warm spring.  Here is the picture filled post of or early attempt.

We will let yall know how it goes.

Cappy, Here's hoping you two do not get a late frost. Don't you love the spring smell of flowering citrus. So heady.

Oh, Cappy....  Listen to your pecan...  But I'm hoping for the best for you!

We're showing a couple of nights towards the end of the month that will be in the mid-30's.

My weather station shows 30 to 32 degrees on March 30 + 31.  Rain and clouds at least 5 days this week.

Thanks yall when ya plant early ya are either a hero or a goat.  If they do well we can brag to our friends.  If they frost we will be ribbed for it.  rain for 5 days no problem thats why they are 12 inch beds.  if the low is 30 still no problem the straw mulch should keep em warm.  I don't wanna defend my gamble too much though in case I strike out.

Great job Cappy! Very Happy

I am WAY behind the curve this year.  My DH purchase boards for new boxes a week and a 1/2 ago but was not feeling well so they did not get built or filled.  He has been out of town for the past week.  First in Houston for business then a long weekend at our camp on Toledo Bend for a fishing tournament. 

DH arrived home an hour ago.  I fixed a light lunch for him and he is now taking a nap.  I REALLY hope I an get enough of his time to help me build, fill and plant my boxes some time this coming week.

In the past I have frequently planted starts in mid March.  More success than failure.

Glad we did not have one of those crazy, late freezes.  It was a good gamble because even a light freeze would not have caused serious damage to your starts.

Thanks for sharing the great pictures.
