This one will have the canary-blurry but cute:

For all you Northerners, it is spring here in Florida.  Enjoy!

Normally it is spring time here, but this year it is late because of unusual rains. They say it is going to be yhe last one of this winter. It is making me impatient to wake up my cactus from winter dormancy, a complete sleep period in which there is no watering, no food, no growth. Only a fight to protect delicate roots from winter rains.

I hope I havn't done damage to roots of those with whome I have been impatient a weak earlier. I am in habbit of doing silly things with my best ones.

The frost is almost gone here. I've started to put the seedlings out in the daytime, so they can get used to the outside temperature. At night I put a plastic cover on.

Three days of new snow, with little melting until today. Snow is finally off sidewalks and driveways ... but very dangerous with black ice. I had planned to cut the old hellebores leaves and stems, but they are covered with snow. Maybe next week.

I will enjoy gardening through you, Sentient. Hope you don't get a late frost.

Oh, Potatoes!  My favorite food!

Sadly, I haven't found room to grow any here, but I used to grow them by putting them on top of the soil, and covering them with straw.  

That makes them very easy to harvest.  Just pull back the straw.  You can also eat some of the babies without hurting the plant's growth much.

I read your potato-in-buckets article (but couldn't reply there). Potatoes can grow just about anywhere in anything. I've de-sprouted my stored oned several times. They can't wait to be planted, which is what I usually do with my leftovers. Another 5-6 weeks, then maybe.

I have sweet potato sprouts started. Come on Spring!

Joan, thanks for the soil temperature planting guide.  I know peas grow in very cold soil because I've tried planting them in February when I lived in a much colder place than this and had good results.

Spud, you might try eating unsalted peanuts; I far prefer them, but then, I am on a low salt diet.
I think if you soak your peanut shells in a bucket of water, that should get rid of the salt ... I don't know that for a fact and someone else may be able to give you the proper information.
