Planting Chiles

Folks this has been one of the strangest springs. It has been really cool and super dry.
Anyway we started planting Chiles yesterday. We planted 3300 plants , but quite because it was so dry. The weather dude says rain coming, so we are holding off a couple of days. We are about 2 weeks late as it is, so a couple more day wont make much difference. I know a lot of y'all are to wet to plant but we are gonna do our rain dance. Might have to do it nude to make it work. (now thats scary)
Onions, well we have started to harvest a few fresh onions. Thats the ones with tops, different from greed onions. We call them spring onions. Sure feels good to be harvesting something. I don't have any photos to post but will get some soon.
Wishing you a great season.

Last freeze

I truly hope our last freeze is over. I have however seen a killing frost on the 15 th of April.
The ground temp is 65-70 ° this is a good thing.
All our fruit trees are bloomed out and looking really good.
I am thinking we might have a bumper crop of blueberries. But we all know what happens sometime when we start thinking own our own.

Our little Chile plants are still in the greenhouse, so they are doing good. They need to be in the ground. But just not ready yet.

The onions are growing finally. They did not respond too well to the snow and cold and lots of rain. I think I might have a photo somewhere I can post. Just a little behind from this time last year. I wish you all a great growing season, Bill
