I miss this group!  Thank you for poking us, Mike.  I think I joined the
facebook group a couple of years ago but can't find it now; I don't think
it ever really took off. I'd love it if we could renew some communication
here.

I got my peas in on March 30.  That was pretty thrilling since last March
30 saw more than a foot of snow on the field!  Garlic is looking fantastic
this year, tall and vigorous.  We had low 20s over the last couple nights
and will have one more that low this weekend but I'm confident that it will
come through fine.

I was trying to be a nice guy with the f'ing rodents who were chewing down
my seedlings in the greenhouse --ultrasonic thingies, peppermint oil on
cotton balls, and cayenne on everything...they wouldn't leave.  Snap traps
are doing the job.

Best to all!
