Of course, I'm in! April 15 is on the early side for my zone, but if boffer is willing to plant carrots in the cold, I have no excuse! Wink Got a free packet of Nantes with another seed order, so I'm ready to go on tax day!

The OTHER HALF!! Boogie, Dahling, I have told you guys before that WE females are the better half and you guys are the other half. Life would just be so much simpler for you once you get that basic principle down. Razz

I thought I was dreaming. I couldn't find this thread. Obviously I'm trying to keep this up top so it won't be forgotten.

So when we get our carrots in, and then harvested, what next, can we please have a fall fun fest in the garden?

I had to sow my carrot seeds today. We're expecting rain, rain, rain the next 3 days in a row so today was just a squeak within the parameters of 3 days before or after the 15th.
I'm also in the far reaches of the north so don't have the advantage of warmer climes.

I only sowed 2 rows today. I'll sow the other 2 rows in 10-14 days.
I've got Scarlet Nantes which says 50-60Days to maturity.

We have +/- 2 days to work with here, right? So, who's planting tomorrow? LOL! I sure might, but will likely be too busy.

Can't remember which movie/tv show (I'm gonna be peeved if it's a Friends quote) quoted my personality......."Great out of the gate, but not much for stamina." (Jeez, there goes everyone's heads again....right in the gutter. GET OUT!! I didn't mean it THAT way.) Very Happy
