80 degrees on April 1st. No fooling.

I couldn't wait to head out to the garden after work. It's hard to resist the urge to get planting but I know that colder days will probably be ahead. However, it sure was fun to get out and play in the dirt. We got a lot done and enjoyed the evening. Now dear hubby heads off to work while I get some tomato seeds started. I settled for "only" four varieties this year. Well it's back to the basement garden station where we have the lights set up for seed starting. Happy planting!

We had 80 degrees here too. I sure hope we get some good rain soon. Everything is extremely dry.

Okay...I saw the 80 degree thing and I have to admit envy.....what the what? I love where I live...I just want 10 degrees warmer at least...I guess I should be happy there is no snow... happy gardening!

Things are coming to life here, too. Tulips and daffodils are blooming, perennials are greening up and my peas and early greens are doing well in the garden. Bring on Spring, I say!

I loved the early warm weather. Planted my peas and stuff already, I couldn't just let the warm weather go by and not attempt to plant something outside... I agree, rain would be very nice to get some more of.

I'll have to check out Ethel gloves and the hori-hori....not familiar with either one.

I do know rhubarb and know that I luv it.

Hope your seed planting went well.

We have a nice big fat snow today..about 5 inches. Wet snow that's clinging to everything and dare I say...looking beautiful

Chris, how nice of you to visit Phillip's blog and take time to leave a comment. He'll be here on Sunday and will read all the comments. He's pretty good with the camera, but stingy with words. Thanks.
