Okie? is that Olkahoma? I thought it got pretty cold there as well? lol and yes off spring is good also. I am southern Indiana and so far God has blessed us with mostly warm weather here. Though the tornadoes were horrible and happened with 10 min. from me.

Glad you all didnt get much damage, you were indeed blessed.
It is also cold in Oklahoma, you are correct. I was born/raised in OK, but my moms side was from around Munice area, and after my parents married moved us to OK. After getting married, almost 30yrs ago, I moved away I have since lost touch with my half brother/sister that live there. I'm now in S. TX., love it near the gulf.

muncie


Muncie Indiana is 5 hours from where I am located. That is a big area. Sure sounds like a much nicer location where you are now at . Have you tried location your siblings by the web? It amazes me what ya can do with these pc's. My brother moved about 7 years ago to Arizona and I havent seen him since. I miss him and he hurt his back on a job he was doing and now cant travel or stand to much for the pain. He is trying to get surgery sch. to fix his back. Hope to see him though sometime soon.

Planting and Spring planting


With me being here in Indiana, I don't get to see my siblings either!!
Most live in Adrian, and Tecumseh, Michigan and also in West Virginia thats
where I was born..
I do have one sister though that followed me and lives in a town that
is about an hour away. We see each other a few times a year as they are
all truck drivers LOL but we email or call each other almost every day.

I plant everything after our last snow here in my upper zone 5. I have blueberry bushes
and strawberry plants on my kitchen table that have
greened up nicely. I got them at Meijers last week. Oh yeah and some
red grapes too.. I will check with the Farmers Almanac to see when the
best time to plant is ..

I tried strawberries a few years they didnt do too well, but after seeing a strawberry fountain I am itching to get some this season to create this. The other sound good, good luck on your graden. I started seeds in late Jan, and transplants them at the end of Feb., only the green beans could be planted directly in the ground. We have been getting ground ready for other herbs seedlings I finally have sprouting. Cant wait til things start getting bigger and producing food.

I know I love that strawberry fountain, it would be so easy for a disabled or senior gal like myself to take care of. Will have to have hubbyman make me one LOL
I am starting my tomato's this week from seed. They will be ready by the time the weather is good for planting. My table looks like a garden already in itself will be glad to get it back soon LOL
