Nomad, 2nd 3 nights of freezing temps, sleet and even snow are past.

I covered and other than about 6 wilted potato leaves that didn't want to stay under the straw I covered them with that are slightly wilted, no damage of any kind.

Good thing I ignored the naysayers. I think I'll have a salad.

TENNGRIZZ I'm going to give it another week or 2 and use this time to build some more chicken tractors.

I'm set to cover everything, I expect minimal to no losses.

Glad for the head start though. Lettuce, radishes, and spinach is harvestable.

tweathe850 Im in the foothills of Virginia and it has been warmish but fluctuating some. I do have some things in the ground already kind of taking a chance.

canningmom42 My dog ate my corn starter that lived and the garlic I had planted. I almost shot him i was so spittin mad... Then the cold hit. Nothing has officially died yet, but they're on life support. Now I'm trying to decide if I'm going to start the next batch of starts this week or next.

BrettTheOkie Only a week ago, we had record-breaking heat for this time of year, 94F where I live. And here I am today, hauling a load of wood up to the back door, for feeding into the fireplace later this evening.

Weedinhoe We're heading into a six day stretch of upper 70's-mid 80's and the soil temp right now is about 64. I think Monday I'll plant that bed of Spring Treat corn, an early variety that will germinate in cooler soils. But between now and Monday that soil temp is going to go up.

Sanderhawk Here in the So Cal mountains the last couple years have gotten snow in May. We got 6 inches of snow on May 20th!! last year. Killed a lot of my plants and flowers. The year before that we got 6 inches on May 7th. I can`t even think about planting anything until June.

Hick Industries I just got the compost spread on my garden area, and I plan to plant corn around mid April.

We got a very light drizzle here in central OK this morning, but it's been dry for most of the day.

My weather station is currently showing 36F, wind chill 35F. I'm sure it will get below freezing tonight, but as long as there is some wind then frost shouldn't be an issue.

goat daddy Our temp is bouncing here. I planted early spring garden last month as it was 70* two weeks later is snowed. Had frost several times last week. Today is warm. My garlic doing great. onion sets are up maybe 2". I don't see any onion seed germinating. Same with leeks. Turnups and greens are up maybe 1/2". Few green peas and a few potatoes. Otherwise just weeds. the warm weather brought my fruit trees to bloom. Then it snow so most likely lost the crops. The weather guesser is not predicting good weather until May, here in the foothills.

Illini Warrior we seem to be running a bit cold - should be regular 50s with some 60s & 70s >>> been barely 50 - had a good snowfall last week ...

canningmom42 I'm in southern OK and I've got 1 stalk of corn barely started (tried 4 total, the others didn't take, but I know it's early for it). I planted Onions and Garlic along with a few sprouts of Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower and some fruit. In another week, I'll start the second batch of seedlings which should go out in 3-4 weeks, depending on how I feel and things that are going on. Tomatoes and such will go in that batch.

I'm going to play the game of riding on the hot weather we're getting right now and run to protect them if need be...

RobertSWMissouri SW Missouri: Potato planing day is "St. Patric's Day" = most years here in this valley my potato's will get frosted, I add a week to that; for the last 10 years I have been planting then I hear the spring peepers the SECOND time, for 2 days in a row... which was a couple weeks BEFORE St. Pat's day ! Had one frost after, but then are just breaking ground now.

April 20 is a good bet to be frost free most years... I have a pepper, and a tomato out IN a half of a clear 55gal drum with 4 gal. of water. I will plant the rest in a week (2 weeks early), but inside 1/2 drums (they like heat, even if frost protection is not needed, they GROW much better the first 2-3 weeks covered (24/7, I do NOT uncover on hot sunny days).

BrettTheOkie We had record-setting heat here in central Oklahoma today, hopefully we will return to more normal temps soon.

Nomad, 2nd Gardner's who have lived here all their life are telling me we are a month early this year.
