    Unique? That's actually a unique way to describe his sense of humor! :D

      I can only start seeds for inside here...it will be until May 15th before I can plant most of my stuff in the garden. Once the snow goes and the ground unfreezes, I'll start working on it a bit, move things around and divide the herbs and replant the strawberry babies, but not much else. Spinach and Kale in April, peas around the first of May, but that's it.:mad:

        yeah, the good ol' cold North east! I figure my stuff will go in about May also, will start the seeds soon, move the seedlings to a little greenhouse during the day in April, but the ground won't be ready until May at least.

        I'm reading all my little seed packets for instructions, since I never grew anything but weeds before.

            I cant wait till april that is when we get to plant, the weather has been pretty nice here in northern califonia, I bought some lettuce, brussel sprouts, and a couple other things from home depot and I was going to try building hoop houses over my raised beds; the only problem is the lady at home depot forgot to give me my last sack containing my goodies.

              Rusty,
              Have you looked into the Square Foot Garden method? We made square foot gardens in High School and they were awesome. (Yes we planted gardens in High School. We also cut trees, drove tractors, and castrated bulls) Gotta love the big town of Walhalla!

                I use the square foot method in our garden and it has helped us quite a bit in managing all the plants. We've almost converted our entire backyard into it because of the amazing results wev'e gotten.

                Gotta love rural Highschools, in our Ag dept every year we always had a tobacco crop we gre to raise money for the school, that was until the govt stepped in and put a stop to that.

                  Some would call it unique. Some would call it dry. I call it a sense of humour based on a lack-o-nicotine.

                      Got pics? I am in my early 30's we didnt have ag in highschool. I probably wouldnt have been interested then anyways, I am a nut about it now and my kids are very involved and they undersatnd that we eat what we produce

                      its crazy to think how fast we can revert back to a much slower pace of life, I was talking to my gradma a while back and she was telling me how she like the 50s the best. I told her to get ready to see them again in the future, there just might be a few more zombies this time.

                      I am getting more involved in community gardens because I think that Is going to be where you can help people the most. I have this video somewhere pertaining to Cuba and what happened when they were locked down and what the communities did to survive if I find it I will let everyone know and send it out to whoever wants to see it

                        I had three of my guys come in today and ask me to start smoking again. One of them brought me a rototiller to borrow. They loaded it in the back of my truck and tied a pack of Marlboros to the handlebars. I will use the tiller and not the smokes. Photos to come when I get home.

                          YOOHOO!

                          The family and I just put in 80 feet of red skin potatoes. I was going to wait until the weekend, but a line of rain is headed this way so I decided to get it done. I'll put in 40 feet of cabbage, 20 feet of broccoli, and 40 feet of yellow onions this weekend. Still didn't take pics. :mad: I will this weekend.

                            What other farm tools do you have other than the skid steer? a skid steer is one good tool the cats are my favorite so far have you looked into all of the different attachments there are for them.

                              Mine is a 1990 New Holland with less than 900 hours on it. It was manufactured before the industry standardized to the Bobcat attachment system. Anything you buy now won't work with mine. I will have to upgrade my attachment system ($800-1000) to be able to. I am waiting until I wear the bucket out and then do it when I get the new bucket.
                              I really want a backhoe attachment bad! You can take one for a 3 point hitch tractor and modify it to fit. Hope to do that next.
                              There are certainly a lot of cool attachments for these things.

                                Had 40 mph sustained winds an 70 mph gusts today. I still tilled the plot. Our soil is very alkalai here, so I tilled in 5 lbs of sulphur, 100 lbs of peat moss, 100 lbs of composted cotton seed cake and 5 lbs of sugar. I spent 1 hour tilling. I wll add my compost in a week or so and till it again. By then there should be more chopped paper and coffee grounds to add.
