Planting Time

Well have been getting rain (wonderful) It looks as thought the drought in East Texas area is broken.
West Texas is still needing more rain. I am not sure about down south.
 I have all my baby plants planted, but with our mild winter the bugs are plentiful. Looks like it is going to be a battle, I am planing to win. (might not though)
 I really felt bad for North Texas with the storms they have had. I saw some photos on TV showing hail stones big as baseballs. Yeah, they were real. Can you imagine what that would do to crops. I have had crops hailed on in the past. (not as big as baseballs) but big enough to destroy the whole fields. When you start plants in January for spring planting its to late to start over. Seeded crops maybe.
 My special Chile plants do look good. They are the elusive Aleppo Chiles. I only managed to get a few seed from Syria. One can buy the ground Chiles from spice company's but they contain no seed. And you cannot buy seed. Why? I haven't a clue.
Hope you all have a great growing season. Bill
