Happy first day of April. Those of you reading this post have also been blessed to see another Spring! We all have been blessed with another chance to have the best gardening season ever!

Tell me what is your preference in gardening. If you have any questions or concerns, I will try to help you find some possible solutions and answers.

My bus is crossing the Mississippi River right now and the water level is much higher than last week, so the folks north of St. Louis must have received an excessive amount of precipitation.

Where are you located? Are you rural or urban? Are you retired or a weekend gardener like me? Are you a newbie or Master Gardener?

Time to deboard my bus. At least, it's Friday. I have a full weekend of gardening ahead with pleasant weather for it.

I'm grumbling over today's cold weather. And the wind. lol. Not liking the wind right now.

Oh my Pepper. What would I do without you dropping in. I feel like an empty nester. LOL

Where have all the flowers gone? This is nuts!

Today the wind was nuts. Strong enough to blow a person over if you weren't paying attention. People still came out in droves to shop anyways. lol

Windy here today, but blowing in warmth. Up to 54 now & going for 70.
Here's a few pictures of progress here this spring.
1. Lettuce planted in rain gutters. Ready to eat soon.
2. Tomato plants in ground in heated hoophouse.
3. Other things growing in hoophouse.
4. My spoiled cat trying to hide.

Hey at least he isn't hiding behind the couch and you have to call some super skinny person to come get him out. lol. I've been that person too many times to count.

Your plants look great!! My tomatoes were looking good until I stuck em outside to harden off and not knowing the wind was going to be so bad. I've lost several of them since then so need to replant all varieties since I didn't keep track when I transplanted them into bigger pots. This time I'll just start them in the 3 inch pots and just do a one time transplant into the ground.

Bernie, What an amazing setup! You must be a hard worker to keep up with everything. Planting lettuce in rain gutters? Again, amazing.

Actually my wife & a full time employee did all the planting, etc.
I am busy in the cabinet shop.

Well then Bernie, you are an amazing couple!

Busy month. Doing the things dreamed about all winter.

Hope everyone has an enjoyable and productive month.

Allergy season is at its peak for tree pollen, but I would rather sneeze than be without trees!

I agree!!!

Being an optimist, I am going to start a May thread tomorrow. Hoping for some flowery May conversation.

Pea size hail this evening. Larger in nearby communities. We had a lot worse this time of year. No damaging winds. All is quiet now.

Come on over to the May thread! Bring your flower pics with you. : )
