Not us, we would have to dig threw a foot of snow let alone handle these -10 Celcius weather.


It is neat to knwo that so many things are different from one part of the world to the next. Our planting season starts in May or sometimes June. A Few months yet.

We don;t grow spuds around here, too hard to separate them from the rocks.

Still cold down east is it? We're having 5 Celsius today, lately that is cool. Our snow is almost all melted. I even heard a gopher the other day. :shock: We never plant anything until after May long weekend. Most times we end up with a lot of snow and cold that weekend.

It's still too early to plant them here. Maybe the first of April.

The old timers...the boys older than me, say ya have to wait till the snow is off Mica Peak before you can plant. Besides the ground is still frozen in spots, though it's about ten degrees above normal.
Thinking about trying the Yukon Gold this year.
