Hello all, we are all well here, just wet and cold. Dang I thought spring was here already. Got a feelin we are in for a wet spring. But it will make for a good garden season again. Am hearing on the news that somewhere in Ky we had tornados last night, hope its not true, although we did get some wind last night. And a bunch of rain. Guess we have the spring storm season to go yet. So everyone dig in, and hang on it will all be over soon.

Have a great day!

stella

Saturday we had several funnel clouds here in western KY. Corydon was hit pretty hard. Lots of wind and thunderstorms, complete with hail. Then the temps dropped yesterday and we had a few snow flurries. Today the sun is shinning and 60 degrees. Another storm system moves in tonight so who knows what we will get.

And let there be rain. We got a good deal of rain here in the east and some flooding in small streams, nothing to write home about. Is this our redbud winter or is it too early? I think our fruit trees survived the cold and snow last week. In our town we got some 2 inches of wet snow that melted by evening. Hope all our fellow Kentuckians have survived the severe weather today.

Happy Easter and have a great day!

it is soggy and cold. I got a fire going and tomorrow is supposed to be a good day for planting corn and beans, according to the sign, but not according to the weather.
Mr.green jeans, I would like to learn to find morels,but have never found one in my life. what kind of place do they like to grow in? Of course if it is woods I might as well forget it. Our woods look so bad a cat could lose her kittens.

Howdy yall, I don,t have enough tec sense to put up a thread on them. Just got a cell phone about 6 month,s ago. : Yep i was draged into the 20th century a kicking and a screaming. I look around water and popular, apple, cherry, tree,s also later in the season on oak ridge,s. Look on The Great Morel Home Page. Great info there and a selection of state forum,s to look on. Read every thing you can on them if you can get someone to show you one or two. There is a false morel out there. If you find a few easy to know the real ones. Just be very careful when gathering mushroom,s. The wrong one can put a hurting on ya. I hope you can get started on them but it is addictive once ya start. I,ve found many in the worst whiterose patche,s ya ever saw. Looked like i tried to put a wildcat in a onion sack at the end of the day. Edge,s of stream,s and river bank,s a really good spot,s. Scymore tree,s do well for me. Enjoy and be safe a hunting. well worth the effort to me anyway.

well, I was at the Amish country store today and the guy who hauled our bull for us was there and had three morels in a poke. so i got a good look.
Well, I think I know where I should look, but heck, nobody has cleaned up over there.
so have you all started putting your gardens out? I planted cabbage and broccoli yesterday.
this kind of weather should be just perfect.

Well we have rain again here. Just wondering if the rain will visit us enough this summer to produce good gardens and such. In our area it is time to have corn and beans in the ground, but its to wet to plow and I cant dance. So guess we will wait for another dry spell. But after this rain everything is so green and beautiful here. Yet another one of Gods many miracles.

Have a great day!

Turned out to be cool, windy, but very nice today. A little trip to the top of the hollar netted 18 morel,s. Only 9 not dried up. Cut the dry one,s in half and layed them under leaf,s in the edge of the bottom. I have had them to come up like that. Weather hold,s out. We will get tater,s out.

Is it going to stop raining any time soon? Or do we get the animals lined up 2 by 2?

I have my boat tied up in the drive way just in case. Naw not that bad yet but i would like to see a little break. We are getting one now but won,t last long. Giving more soon to come. Right about the time it,ll start to dry up. Here it,ll come back. I did get some tender treat corn and white cornfield bean,s in, two kind,s carrot and beet,s out. Another onion and lettuce bed. We have two and a half inch,s so far. Not as bad as some place,s with 3 to 5 that,s a bit much i reckon.

(Tossin out floaties) Well we had corn and beans and some other stuff planted, maybe its still there some where. Guess we will just harvest where ever it grows. We got some hard rain but in the river bottoms it drains pretty good so maybe......We are very blessed to have a river farm that get moisture and drains well even in rainy seasons like we have had.
We have bunches of plants that need transplanted to the big garden soon as it dries a little. All the other berries and plants that were planted around in other areas of the farm are doing well. Now if I could just figure out how to keep the moles or something from eatin my onions I would be doing really well.

Have a great day and stay dry!
