Morning Piggies and a Happy New Years!!!!!

It 28F and the windows are frozen and so is the ground this morning. Rain wil be starting to come back in tomorrow and hang around til sometime Sunday. I want the rain cuz it means warmer temps, but hate it coming cuz have major roof leak all down one wall I found out. grrrrrrrr

I seen on news this morning where in some folks in Tx are goign to be waking up to freezing rain , ice and some snow. Uggggggggg how many days yet til spring??? Can't be soon enough for me that is for sure.

While I'm sorting seeds and such beenthinking about what I am going to plant and already starting to do the backwards count in my head of when things will need to be started. I am just hoping we don't have a spring like last year. Last year we had almost 10" of rain in April and almost all the first plantings of seed out and plants all got flooded out and rotted. So many it is a good thing we getting the rain now.

It's getting harder and harder with the crazy weather conditions to figure out when to start seed indoors as you can only hols so many inside for some of us.

I know I plan on putting some of the Salvias and a few others outside in just trays and let the rain start working away at seed coats. I have found that with the perennial Salvias that I have better luck at germination if I do that. Germination will be eradic but it works for me anyways.

I keep thinking about all the beets I asked for. Gonna be a fun time trying to figure out where to put them all. I am wondering , if chickens wil try and eat the tops. We have a few chicken folks around and there chickens always running loose and coming and trying to eat in my yard.

Does anybody besides me follow along with the Farmer's Almanac for a planting guidline for weather conditions?
