We had 2 weeks of very shifty weather. Either brilliant sun shine or snow. Especially the last 4 days were nasty.
Very windy and snow. Last night the temps went below 20F, with 20 mile winds, quiet refreshing.

I had the heater in the green house going the last 4 days.

The outside wiking bed with the potatoes got a little frost damage on the leaves. They are just pocking through the dirt. No real damage

We had threat of Tornado here yesterday along with not quite golf ball sized hail. But, the ground got a good soaking with the rain throughout the day, so I'll be pulling up weeds in between whatever may be thrown our way today.

(pauses for 2 minutes).....

looked like it was going to be somewhat of a productive morning, just started raining......oh well.....

If there is a guy upstairs I bet he's wondering when we'll take responsibility Rapid Climate Change. Hehee
Looks great up there Gnoib, except for the hail. That was a wet little storm for sure. Oh you guys are talking about the storm the other day, damn this one does seem to keep coming back for more.

Yesterday afternoon I made it barely up the hill, 6 inches of hail on the road and it was rushing down the steep road like a river.
Its totally crazy this year.
We had nearly 40mm in the last 2 days and a foot of hail

The crazy weather continued.
We had a short but rather drastic change. 4 inches of snow and night temps in the lower 20F.

My outside potatoes took a beating. I ran the propane heater for 3 days in the green house.

I tried this year a more hardy strawberry, Ft. Laramy. They are doing rather well and are producing already.

I checked today on the potatoes in the green house. They are a 90 day early variety. I seeded them first week of March. The whole grow bed is full of them. I dug one out to check. Its not a very big one, I was very conservative with vertilizer.
The skin is not jet strong enough
2 more weeks I would say.

for this year I will let the asparagus just grow wild. Its the first year. I planted 6 roots and all took.

I am not sure about the onions and garlic, I think they just grow the green stuff. :mrgreen:

We didn't get the extreme weather you did, but it was crazy enough for us and the plants. I saw the first grasshopper even with freezing mornings, hail, snow and rain from this same storm. Your system looks great Gnoib. I wish I felt a little better so I could write halfway comprehensively like I used to. hehe

Get better Brian.

I hope to take the green house system back into operation this week.
The forecast looks good.
I feel we are heading towards summer.

The oak leaves are dead, hammered. Maybe the oak will survive. No idea.

I have not jet decide what I will plant in the AP beds, short season this year. 6 month aint much.

Six months isn't much that's for certain. A couple years back many of the oaks here got nailed by a severe late frost and it took out all the new growth. It slowed them down for sure, but they recovered, I hope yours do as well.

Yesterday I dug up the first potatoes. They are very tasty, what a difference from the store bought.

Since potatoes take a lot of room, I checked on alternatives.

Found potato tower as a possibility. That will be my next experiment.

Maybe something for Brian, for his indoor garden.

I will put one into the green house and one into my indoor garden.

Brian, that looks ugly.
So I decided to have a potato tower after that idea.

http://www.krisenvorsorge.com/der-kartoffelturm/

Translated you cover the plant, when ever the greens are 6 inches high, with around 5 inches of dirt.
The greens keep on pushing. But were the leaves bud from the stem, the arm pit, new tubers will sprout and potatoes will grow.
According to the link one can push a plant to 3 feet and get around 20 times of harvest.

I had a white 55 gallons drum that was damaged and a sore spot in the indoor garden.
So I dug it in and drilled a few holes about 10 inches from the bottom. Dumped some soil in it, up to the holes and than put 4 inches of old hay in it, covered it with an inch of soil and than placed the seeder, covered them with soil and watered the whole thing.

Lets see what happens.
