    Garden beds approximately 2000 square feet or 186 square meters were rototilled today. The mulch was removed from the Globe Artichoke, and it remains to be seen if the plants survived the Winter. The area was dry enough to rototill, and I want to plant my onion bulbs. The ground temperature is 5 degrees C, and has been for about four days.

    I'm jealous! Every time the grass starts to appear, it snows some more. I can't wait to get out gardening. It's going to be a while before my soil is 5 degrees C as it's still frozen solid, It will be at least a month before I can plant my onions. I hope your artichokes survived. :)

    I like the dog! We are eating greens and radishes from our garden and the broadbeans are up! I'm starting artichokes this year they are still in the greenhouse. Spring is fun!
