Looking great Sharps. You've got a really good start on the growing season.

I'll be transplanting my seedlings from the cold frame to the garden this weekend. Probably Sunday as I look at the weather. Then I can change things  up in the cold frame. Need to start a few flowers for mama.

Hope everything survives okay. Sunday is the big day.

Mid 40's for us tonight. Another day in the 50's tomorrow with some showers around.

It's a beautiful day around here. Very sunny, but dry and cool. Lowes was a mob scene at 8:30 am this morning.

Added a layer of leaf mulch to my potatoes , cukes and pickles I have planted. Also added some wood ash to the potatoes to help the Ph. Everything is growing along quite nicely.

I planted our sunflower patches yesterday. I chose the spot where I had my leaf mulch pile a couple years ago. Rich ground for sure. Didn't want to dig it up completely so I uesd my bulb drill and set holes in a pattern. Then I filled them up with potting mix and planted the seeds. I put in Mammoth, Velvet Queen and a mixed variety. Might do a little fence around it and cover it with leaf mulch. Should be pretty cool with twelve foot sunflowers in the middle, six foot flowers around them and four foot flowers on the border.

Also emptied the seed trays along the garage for Black Oil flowers. Replaced the bird feeders with petunias. Saw the hummingbirds at the lilac bush last evening so I put their feeder up as well.

My birds and bees should be happy.

   Deerefishyfishy  I hope you didnt dig that out with that shovel???     ;D ;D ;D

Dumped two big piles with a tractor from the family farm and then spread it all by hand. It gives you a new appreciation for tractors and manure spreaders. They could have done in 30 seconds what it took me about 3 hours to do by hand. I guess a little exercise never hurt anyone though
Do you think fish go home and lie about all the bait they stole?

Early to bed, early to rise
Fish all day and make up lies...

There's a reason they call it fishing, not catching.

You and me and my son will get along quite well. My son tells me about dealing with the morons on the golf course and having to TEACH them how to coil up the miles of hoses they use for irrigation. In my cabinet shop, one really quick way to find yourself out the door was to ignore my instructions on coiling air hoses and extension cords.

Some people just don't get it.

It takes persistence and stupidity  :-\

I caught one of my shop workers winding a cord around his arm one day and instructed him on the proper winding of an extension cord. A few days later I found him doing the same thing again. I asked if he understood what I told him and he said " what's the difference"

I fired him on the spot, telling him he was just too stupid to work for me. Seems harsh, but he really was too stupid to work for me.
