Long time gardener here looking to share garden talk with friendly folks. Just planted my potatoes today (a few days early but were're enjoying a warm spell.)

Have 300 of my favorite 1015 onions in the ground that are just about to wake up out of dormancy and carrots, radishes, turnips, broc, cabbage, etc. all winter here.

Looking forward to participating in some gardening talk.

Hello and welcome! We are in central Texas, and I planted broccoli today, and with luck, the turnips, spring lettuce, carrots will go in this week, and the potatoes on Valentine's Day.
Isn't this warm weather delightful?

Thanks for the welcome! Yes I usually plant the spuds on Valentine's day but it has been so nice and warm I just could not wait.

This weather can't last...but I sure hope it does.

Welcome from down here in south central Texas. Put my broccoli in last week. All my tomato and pepper seedlings are up and thinking this weather is great but it is going to all change tomorrow, Thursday, when the high here is supposed to be 42.

Welcome to the forum, Meadowlark! :)

Crazy weather! We're expecting a high of 62 on Thursday, and a high of 26 on Friday. :cry:

What size garden do you have? I'm guessing it is a large one (by UK standards, at least)

Arden,

They say everything in Texas is bigger, LOL. Actually my garden isn't large by Texas standards. For veggies, I usually plant 60 ft rows and cover a width of about 45 ft. total.

Attached photo may help...shows my 300 onion sets, cover crop to the right, broc,cabbage, etc. to the far right, carrots and turnips to the left and potato row and other ground to the far left ready for spring planting...dog on patrol for any veggie eating critters.
